Ferran Adrià, the most influential chef in modern gastronomy.
"When I finished my military service I went to work for three months in Seville, at the San Marco restaurant."
Did you know that the best chef in the world worked in our kitchen?
"They called me to go to work in April, and there I went." From Seville he began his march towards the town of Rosas (Girona), where the building that houses the El Bulli facilities crowns the Montjoi cove. In this location located in the Cap de Creus natural park, the chef began his transoceanic journey. Together with his brother, Albert Fermí Puig in his restaurant GTRES Adrià, he carved out a niche for himself in the kitchen-school in 1984 until he became a master and golden chef.
History of our venue
Arab baths from the 12th century in Mudejar style. It is worth highlighting the starry windows of the vault, also known as Madawis. These baths had a religious purpose, in which Muslims purified themselves (washed) before the prayer that took place in the current Cathedral of Seville.
The Catholic Monarchs, after establishing trade routes with America and with the intention of attracting new markets, converted the Baths into taverns to accommodate the Mudejars/Moors who would pass through Seville for commercial purposes. That is why the street where the restaurant is located is called "Calle Mesón del Moro."
The building passes into the hands of the Church, characterized by its discomfort and the coexistence of guests with animals.
The bathrooms become part of the transportation industry, functioning as horse stables and carriage warehouses. It is the millstones on the exterior façade that provide this information; in addition to protecting the walls of the building during the indicated time.
