The Residence of the Duke of Wellington

LoadingAdd to My Granada

This is a country estate that was built in the early 19th century by the so-called ‘Prince of Peace’, Manuel Godoy. It was donated in perpetuity by the government of Spain (together with the Soto de Roma lands in Fuente Vaqueros) to the Duke of Wellington and his descendants.

It was a token of appreciation for Wellington’s help during the War of Independence against Napoleon. The property includes the entire Dehesa Baja de Íllora, a huge expanse of land that extends as far as Alomartes.
