My Dream House

Posted in Blah with tags , , , , , , on July 7, 2009 by Looks Delicious

Technically this is not a house, it is Castillo de Las Coloradas or Torre de Aguila (Eagle Tower), it’s in Lanzarote and it’s my new dream home. It was built in 1742 as a watchtower for the strip of sea between Lanzarote and Fuerteventura and it was burned by Pirates looking for slaves but it’s still standing. There is a beautiful belltower on top and sits on it’s own on the edge of the cliff but the best part is that it has a drawbridge so I can just raise it up and keep the monsters out. I just hope I can get wireless in there…..
