This organic estate lies in an iconic Spanish landscape: it was the home of Cervantes’ fictional knight Don Quixote. Moreover, there have been many centuries of the most bitter battles across this land between the invading Moors and indigenous Christians. The plight of a Moorish princess of the time inspired the name ‘Mureda’. She was orphaned in one of the many battles across the region, remained hidden and protected here by a knight. So the house became known as ‘The House of the Moor’ or ‘La casa de Mureda’. This was in tribute to the brave young girl’s plight in a time of great conflict.
