A&N La Rebotica, edificio histórico en el corazón de Vélez.
"La Rebotica de San Francisco" is located in a renovated building that was once a Mudejar house from the 16th century in Vélez-Málaga, started in 2010 and has preserved its structures, facades and courtyards, Vélez-Málaga was reconquered by the Catholic Monarchs on May 3, 1487. From of then and as in other previously reconquered territories of the peninsula, the new constructions were designed and executed with Mudejar criteria and techniques. The Mudejar architecture was developed between the XII and XVI centuries, as the reconquest and new buildings were promoted in the territories conquered by the Christians It is said "Mudejar" because they were executed, to a large extent, by the Mudejars, people of Muslim religion and Arab culture that remained in the Christian kingdoms after the conquest of their territory and that, in exchange for a tax, they kept their religion and a own legal status; They were also executed by Moors and Christians who They learned the techniques of Muslim art. These new constructions, executed by mudejar alarifes, are characterized by the reproduction in plan and elevation of the Christian buildings of Castilla but using in its construction, fundamentally, clay brick instead of stone. Is technique was present even in the execution of pillars, which came to replace the ones, until then used, stone columns. This is the constructive typology of the house of "La Rebotica de San Francisco", as well as from the House of Cervantes and the Convent of San Francisco (built on the existing mosque before the reconquest of Vélez-Málaga), among others. In all of them it is possible to appreciate its pillars executed by means of the superposition of round, reddish bricks and clay blocks. Curiously, the Beniel Palace, next to the aforementioned buildings, although of a Mudejar type, it lacks brick pillars in its patio and if of stone columns. Our distinguished writer D. Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra resided between the years 1594 and 1597 in Vélez-Málaga. In those years he held the position of "collector of taxes "and resided, concretely, in what is now known as Casa de Cervantes. Fruit of this stay are many of the citations that Cervantes made about Vélez-Málaga in some of his books. So and among others, in El Ingenioso Hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha, is collected: "Thanks be to God, gentlemen, who has led us so much! because, if I'm not deceived, the land we tread is that of Vélez-Málaga! ". If historically the house had its main access through San Francisco Street, after the restoration and planned reform, it was decided that the main access to housing in that the house has been divided by Calle Campillo, located behind the back of the Pharmacy and hence the name "La Rebotica de San Francisco". In any case "La Rebotica de San Francisco" has been promoted with the effort, darling and respect that a monumental and historical house like this deserves.
