    The villa was named after the German engineer Gustav Winter, who was born in Zastler in the Black Forest on May 10, 1893, and is surrounded by rumors and mysteries. The house was built in 1936.
    Gustav Winter has worked in Spain since 1915 and has been involved in various projects.
    The common speculations about the tasks of Gustav Winter and the function of the finca in Cofete are:
    - Establishment of a secret submarine port during the Second World War
    - Temporary accommodation of Nazi greats and their transport to South America at the end or after the end of the Second World War.
    However, Winters said in an interview given shortly before his death in 1971 that has fueled speculation since he stated that the villa was built in 1958. As a reason for the extremely remote and difficult to reach location, he cited being a nature lover.Who knows!!! Source:
