Spanish Mediterranean (12)

Sotogrande is initiated by the US businessman Joseph McMicking in a joint venture with the golf expert Robert Trent Jones at the beginning of the 1960s. It is located in the San Roque municipality (province of Cadiz), just north of Gibraltar. Architects Corrales and Molezun played a significant role in the planning and in the architectural design of buildings such as the Hotel Sotogrande. Decree 2990/1965 grants the development the fiscal benefits of a National Interest Tourism Center defined in Law 197/1963, in the framework of the aggressive pro-tourism policies of the moment. The project is extended in 1965 with a Polo field. The combination of a Golf  course, a marina, good sports venues and an upper economic level residential offer has contributed to a luxury image to this southern tip of the Costa del Sol.
