Josefa and José were the original owners of Casa Bombo. Their neighbours and friends knew them as “Mamá Pepa" y "Pepico el Bombo”. They shared the house with various other residents and would get together in the communal patio to talk about day to day matters. After they left, the house was uninhabited for a long period, and fell into disrepair. The building was a relatively old construction, with some parts dating back 100 years and other parts much older. It consisted of two floors with a tower, two patios, one leading from the entrance and the other at the back.
In 1999 a new owner started a demolition and construction project which lasted until 2012 when, with the building almost finished, the current owner took over the renovations of Casa Bombo which would lead to the building we can see today.
The essence of this historic house has been maintained throughout the various stages of its transformations. From a house shared by neighbours, to a student residence and a youth hostel, all the way to its current use as a house for guests and a home for its owners. In Casa Bombo, there has always been an emphasis on community and a space to be shared.
