Casa de las Conchas

Posted in Threatened Environments

The Casa de las Conchas, in Montoro, some 20 miles west of Córdoba in Spain’s Andalucía province, is for sale. This spectacular art environment, created by Francisco del Rio Cuenca (1926-2010), is ornamented with over 116 million shells from all over the world. (See SPACES’s page on the site at http://www.spacesarchives.org/explore/collection/environment/casa-de-las-conchas-house-of-shells/).

The house has five bedrooms, a small living room, a kitchen, one bathroom, and three patios behind; the last one overlooks the Guadalquivir River, and the bluffs across the river.

The asking price is 210,355 Euros.

Interested parties should be in touch with Manoli, one of del Río Cuenca?s daughters, who lives in Montoro, at + 34 620 107 005 (cell) or +34 957 160 621 (home) [she speaks only Spanish]. She would be happy to show people the home, and we at SPACES would be happy if someone who really appreciated the site and art environments would buy it!
