    Default WTF is this place?


    I was recently on holiday in Fuerteventura and one nght my fella and I went exploring near the hotel, thats when we stumbed across this place. And any ideas as to what it is are greatly appreciated!We couldn't get in because there was a guard dog in the grounds :(






    Note the smaller hexagonal white wall on the left of this next one -




    This is what it looked like when you peered into it










    There were massive white walls like this all around the compound


    Lord knows I tried googling it!

    I think it is just another holiday developement not completed due to lack of moneys.Probably some time-share company who cant finish the site due to the world recession.

    What was the place that was abandoned due to ETA activity? I had a feeling it was Fuerteventura.

    Yeah possibly, we couldn't figure out if it was that or one that had been used and abandoned. The funny thing is, we couldn't figure out what it was used for in the first place, i.e. if it was a hotel complex of some sort then whats the big glass circular building for? Why is it such a distinct style of architecture? Why are the rooms underground? If it was for tourist information or something, then why does it have rooms, are they rooms or shops? So many questions!

    Do it safely, or not at all.

    Euskadi Ta Askatasuna, a Basque separatist organisation. They were an issue for people holidaying in Spain in the 1970s.
