We are in charge of selling a unique historical property of nearly 30ha in first coastline with 3 beaches between Barcelona and Valencia which was in hands of one family for more than 500 years. The property is called “Torre Sol de Riu del Rey”.
In the centre of the property there is a historical Arab style building which dates from the end of the 8th century, build on top of some older Roman ruins and there are maps from the 13th century where the Tower is indicated as a fortress and watch tower.
As an oral tradition it´s said that the Emir Abderraman I camped with his troops at the castle in the year 770 when he came from Valencia and went to Saragusa (Zaragoza) to fight against his enemy Sulayman al Arabi, who was the governor.
In the year 1522 the famous King Carlos I of Spain and V of the holy Roman Empire donates this castle and all surrounding land to Loduvicus Sunyer who also received a knighthood, for his service to his majesty.
Since then the Castle belongs to the same family for the last 500 years.
