San Benito was built as a hermitage by the order of Calatrava in the end of the 15th century. Situated within the entrance of the Sevillian village of Cazalla de la Sierra, in its origin it served as a hospital for pilgrims in their way to Santiago. After the earthquake of Lisbon, in the beginning of the 16th century, the tower-facade and the apse crumbles and is subsequently reconstructed under the direction of Martin de Gainza and son, finishing with the existing triangular tower, the oldest example in Andalusia. The facade was designed by Hernan Ruiz II, in brick of Triana with a quality fine finish. Reconstruction work was finished in 1576. Manuel Morales de Jodar acquires the property in 1997 jointly with Carlos Maranon, both initiating the restoration and new construction of the actual building. The many years it was abandoned, the distinct uses it was dedicated to after its demystification, made it a difficult and costly recuperation. Elements of a familiar palace, crumbled years back, supplied an assortment of materials used in the newer and adjacent construction, thus resulting in no difference between the new and the primitive, of which the original elements of different epochs conform the history of a new building, with the comfort and technology of the highest grade and the quality of handcrafted arts, of long ago. The spirit of this building resumes in comfort, beauty, history and technology.
