Among gentle and green hills is the Grand Hotel Abetina, a majestic abandoned hotel.
But the Grand Hotel Abetina is not alone.
On an area of 13,000 square meters it occupies only 3,000, while the other 10,000 host an abandoned colony known as the Colony of Tutus.
The history of the colony and the Grand Hotel Abetina are closely linked.
The Colony of Tutus in fact was inaugurated in the mid-70s, as a holiday center for the children of the employees of the postal administration, and was a great success, it was thought (at the beginning of the 80s) to also build the Grand Hotel Abetina for allow parents to stay close to their children.
Both structures were short-lived, and the more unfortunate Grand Hotel Abetina closed for bankruptcy in 1992, soon followed by the colony in 1997.
