Vaso "Kalathos", decoberto durante as obras de reconstrução.
During the building rehabilitation, was discovered an ancient Iberian vase named Kalathos, vase in the form of a top hat, used to keep the wool or fruits, often used in ancient Greek art as a symbol of abundance and fertility. This name was used to baptize our modern lodgement building, with its 3 apartements for turistic acomodation.
