Winter House

Winter House, also known as Villa Winter, is located above the town of Cofete and at the foot of Pico de la Zarza, the mountain range that divides the Jandía Peninsula from north to south.

It was built around 1940 by Gustavo Winter, a German engineer who ended up owning the entire Jandía peninsula.

Its isolation, the strangeness of the construction and the endless legends generated around it that relate this building to an alleged secret German submarine base during World War II, have served as inspiration for several famous novels with the Nazi background as a common thread as Fuerteventura, de Alberto Vázquez-Figueroa, coffee, de Ricardo Borges Jurado o El contenido del silencio, de Lucía Etxebarría.
