Nazi Villa - Gustav Winter

Cofete is special and mysterious. Only about 15 people and some goats live there now.

The phantastic landscape will fascinate you. It's pure nature. No tourism in this nature park with the 16 km beach.

The cemetory is right at the beach and a witness of Cofete's special story which you can read on a metal plate at the "entrance".

Nobody really knows what happened during Nazi time when the German Gustav Winter built his villa at the well by 800m mountains protected hillside. All kind of rumours were written about it.

It is very difficult to get there on dirt roads but this has one advantage, there are not many tourists  ;-)
