Weddings and the Chapel

Wedding ceremony

The Palacete de Cazulas is the ideal location to celebrate your wedding reception in the sun. Something a little different and more special. Local accommodation is available for additional guests and  there is also a wide selection of hotels in Almuñecar where they can stay after your reception.

You have exclusive use of the property throughout your stay. The property is let on a self catering basis with staff available as required.

The gardens and terraces can accommodate up to 120 guests comfortably for the reception. The Chapel will seat up to 45 and a maximum attendance of 70 persons (the remainder standing).

Costs for weddings depend on the couples requirements. We shall be happy to advice you further on your very special day.

The Chapel

The chapel was constructed around 1890 by the De Castro family, owners of the Palacete de Cázulas and its surrounding estate since the 16th century. It's last surviving member, the Marquesa de Montenaro y Barcinas, dedicated the chapel to the Virgin of Lourdes after a pilgrimage to Lourdes cured her of cancer. She also built a small grotto beside the chapel which contains a statue of the saint.

During the Spanish Civil War (1936-9), the chapel was ransacked by republican supporters and its statue of Jesus which had been hidden in a roof, was found and burnt in the courtyard. After the war, the Marquesa returned to Cázulas and refurbished the chapel with religious artefacts from her home in Madrid, and the building resumed its role as religious centre of the estate, used for weddings, baptisms and daily services.

When the Marquesa died in 1972, the property passed into the hands of the Opus Dei and the chapel fell into disuse. In 1988 the whole estate was transferred to a local co-operative of owners/workers and, a short while later, the house, chapel and gardens were sold into private hands where they've stayed ever since.

Over the last few years the chapel has been fully restored to its former glory. A delightful statue of the Virgin of Lourdes presides over the altar which is more than two centuries old. Carved and colourful saints look down from the walls and the original plain marble font stands beside the entrance. The chapel's lofty vaulted roof and high windows provide the correct subtle lighting and atmosphere for an intimate ceremony.

Power outlets are available for extra photographic lighting or taped music.

 The 'Old Olive Mill' ( El Antiguo Molino)


We are pleased to be able to offer the benefit of the 'Old Olive Mill' which was comprehensively refurbished in 2009 .The Mill has a seating capacity of 100 persons in an open space and is highly suitable for groups reserving the property for a wedding reception or other function when they are unable to have the function during low season months or outside due to unfavourable weather conditions.

There is NO additional charge for using the Mill as the main venue on the day of their reception .The client has the choice whether to hold the function outside in the main gardens or in the Mill.
Use of the Mill for additional days is strictly by separate arrangement and is at extra cost .
