An old house dating from the 16th century, which in the past was the home of the Bordoy Blanes family and the elitist religious school of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Thanks to the dream of Don Mikael Hall, its current owner of Swedish nationality, and the excellent refurbishment work of the award-winning architecture studio Ohlab, the beautiful building has recovered and magnified its former splendor.
