50TH Anniversary: Mojacar Parador history will be on display.
Mojacar Parador takes its place in history this week as an exhibition in its honour is held by the Junta de Andalucia regional government.
The Parador celebrated its 50th anniversary earlier this year and various documents and paperwork relating to its opening will be displayed in the Junta archives.
Amongst the paperwork is the original decree from the minister of finance when the land was acquired for the government-run establishment.
The original plot of land cost the equivalent of some €8,000 and the construction of the building, €148,000.
Some of its first guests were high-ranking military officers sent to the area following the nuclear crash in nearby Palomares.
The Mojacar Parador played an important part in the creation of the province as a tourism destination and its opening was shortly followed in 1968 by the inauguration of the province’s airport.
