The image is shocking. Decades of history turned to nothing. A symbol disappears Les Rotes, in front of which hundreds of people passed every day this summer to enjoy a day at Punta Negra. The Chermes house, as it was known locally, is already just a skeleton.
The construction dates from 1950. It was an imposing villa that stood out for its high central tower, which is now the only thing left standing, resisting the demolition (the workers have had to resort to more machinery). This ostentatious building also has one of the largest plots of land in Les Rotes (14.400 square meters), next to the one that had been for sale for years, very deteriorated due to lack of care.
The current catalog of protected buildings of the Dénia City Council left out, despite its obvious great architectural value, this construction that now, due to lack of protection, has fallen into the hands of the promoters.
The house is no longer part of the usual landscape of Les Rotes after consenting to the segregation of the land into 12 plots that will end up becoming luxury homes. In this way, what will be protected is the architectural trend that is increasingly impersonal and more aware of the Les Rotes business.
