Edificio Carbonell Building

Address: Explanada de España, 1, Alicante

This is one of the most prominent and remarkable buildings in Alicante. Just a stones throw from Playa del Postiguet it stands at the impressive address of Number 1 on the Explanada de España and you cannot miss this building.

This is known locally as "Casa Carbonell" or "Carbonell House". It was said to have been built upon the orders of a textiles manufacturer Enrique Carbonell from Alcoy and the impressive architecture reflects the wealth of Alcoy textiles manufacturers during World War One. Casa Carbonell was built by Juan Vidal Ramos between 1922 and 1925, (who also built the Alicante Provincial building situated on Avda. de la Estación, 6,).
