Casa Franco of Casa Fuset

High on a ridge in the Anaga Mountains on Tenerife surrounded by thick laurel forest is another abandoned building, this time a house. Its official name is Casa Fuset but I suppose because of the relationship between the owner Don Benito, whose daughter married General Franco’s friend and administrator Lorenzo Martinez Fuset it is known as Casa Franco. The house was built in the early 1940s and it is believed Franco stayed there on several occasions. It was in good condition until the 1980’s when it started to decline and now it is only a matter of time until it is forgotten forever.
