Overview
More
The house got its name from one of its dwellers, a person well known by all of the town, whose occupation, among other things, was selling tobacco and various goods of everyday needs. Visitors of this old house of Mojácar get a chance of making a connection with the epoch of the first half of XX century and learn about history and culture of this remarkable town. 200 square metres of exposition, the house is more than 100 years old decorated with real things of the first half of the 20-th century.

This house has been nicely restored with furniture of the first halve of XX century by - surprise - Yulia and Sergei, a hospitable couple of Russian origin. Both speak apart of their native language excellently Spanish. Sergei also English.
