Known as “Casa Carbonell” or “Carbonell House” and standing at Number 1 on the Explanada de España esplanade, this is one of the most striking buildings in Alicante. Built by J. Vidal Ramos between 1922 and 1925, Casa Carbonell is said to have been constructed upon the orders of a textiles manufacturer from the nearby town of Alcoy, Enrique Carbonell. The building bears testimony to the wealth of Alcoy textiles manufacturers during World War One.
