Sacromonte Abbey, Granada

In the south of Spain, on the edge of Granada, Andalucia, lies the Abbey of Sacromonte, a historic 17th century structure which is a superb example of the Renaissance period in Andalusia. In 2011, Bell Architects became involved in renovating this iconic building, breathing new life into a structure which had become quite derelict over the years and in fact had suffered from catastrophic fire damage in places.

Our focus was to regenerate the Abbey and restore it as the exciting and compelling architectural landmark that it is by encouraging the re-birth of a live-in community. That community, once established, could study, craft, live and pray within the ancient and historic structures, which ultimately draw them closer together, giving them a shared responsibility and indeed ownership of the project.
