Hotel Unit - Beautiful unfinished project.
Located in Centro. Hotel Unit - Beautiful unfinished project. In the city center and in the heart of the historic district of Silves is this beautiful building, an unfinished dream / project aimed at the tourist accommodation sector. Fully respecting the current urban rehabilitation policy strategy, which requires respect for the architectural character of the buildings and the preservation of the original façades ('reconstitution of the original design of at least façades and roofs') and grants some freedom in the restructuring and modernization of its interiors, this building manages to combine, perfectly, the aesthetic dimension, of harmonious lines, with the demands of modernity and comfort that today's life requires. In view of its privileged location - close to the marginal avenue, close to car parks and bus terminals and being an integral part of the traditional tourist itinerary of the city of Silves - its available area and the existing foundations / structure, this building has a enormous potential in terms of investment and further exploration of the business dedicated to tourist accommodation. It consists of 3 floors (ground floor, 1st and 2nd floor and a huge terrace) connected by an elevator, wide, well-designed areas and a spectacular terrace with panoramic views over the city. Inserted in a very busy area, several types of commerce and plenty of options in terms of leisure spaces, bars and restaurants. CURIOSITIES: «Silves' origin is difficult to determine given his antiquity. Archeology has led to the conclusion that the region has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Silves probably came from an important Phoenician factory in the 1st millennium BC, the so-called Cilpes, which was about two kilometers from the current city. There are also traces of the Roman occupation, in the urban core of the city. The Muslim occupation was the one that most influenced the territory, having been present since the 8th and 13th centuries. It is during this period, particularly in the 9th to 12th centuries, that Silves becomes an important economic, social and cultural center, having received the title of 'cradle of Arabic-Andalusian poetry', being known as the city of philosophers and poets, as Ibn Caci, Ibn Ammar or King Al-Mutamid. In the 12th century, the city, called Xelb (or Xilb), was described by geographers as sumptuous and imposing and compared in grandeur with Lisbon, Seville and Cordoba. The main monuments of the city date from the period of Arab occupation, including the Castle, an important military fortification, one of the most beautiful and well preserved in the country, the current Cathedral and the Almohad cistern, a unique example on a world scale... » Junta de Freguesia de Silves (site) (AV-PBI-NO1031)
