Ruins of the flour mill
As a result of a fire in 1950, Zorita fell into neglect and for almost half a century, the state was passed from hand to hand unused and in a real state of decay and ruin. In 1998 a real estate project planned to convert Hacienda Zorita into a development of semi-detached houses.
In 1999 The Haciendas Company acquired the property from the real estate developers and carried out the first intervention to avoid ruins and begin its restoration. Specifically of the current Bodega de Crianza designed by the illustrious architect Jose María Pérez González, known as Peridis in his work as a cartoonist and comedian.
Peridis’ unique design highlights the spectacular roof of the Bodega, which, in homage to Christopher Columbus’ stay at Hacienda Zorita, is reminiscent of an inverted Caravel. This was the beginning of its recovery.
