The Viscount of Amaya was a short, restless, unstable man, rather short and somewhat gangly. It is difficult to understand him and even more difficult to please him. In one of his outbursts he planned the construction of a sanatorium in the vicinity of Robledollano. Or at least that’s what they said in the village….
The construction was the responsibility of two masons; Alonso, who was from the locality, and Santiago from Trujillo. The stone is made of slate and was carried by Basilio with two mules.
