The smallest hotel in the world

On the shore of the Atlantic Ocean is the hotel Hotel Punta Grande, which has existed for many years.
In 1992, the hotel was in the Guinness Book of Records as the smallest in the world.
The hotel is famous not only tiny size, but located on the shores of the uninhabited volcanic island of El Hierro - the most remote of the Canary archipelago.

Las Puntas - a small, picturesque village located in the eastern part of El Golfo Bay, at the foot of the mountain La Peña, in the municipality of Frontera. This is one of the most beautiful places in the Gulf, who had previously played a very important role in the economy of the island.

On a small stone ledge in 1884 it was built customs, actively used in the 20-ies. Then the local products were exported to ports in northern Europe, and the inhabitants of El Hierro necessary goods were brought to the island.

Today, in a small renovated building housed Customs comfortable hotel Hotel Punta Grande. The hotel has a total of four double rooms and a small hotel restoranchik.V no cable TV and telephone. Rooms nothing more. Vacationers in Punta Grande, not for luxury, but for the unity with nature, which is nothing to prevent. Let me remind you that in 2000, the island of El Hierro was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
