Castillo Villa del Mar is a Victorian mansion that's on the National Registry of Historic Places (despite the dilapidation and the graffiti) and was once home to a restaurant and art gallery where local painters showed their work. These days it's a run-down old eyesore, but the mansion next to it has been somewhat restored, giving rise to hopes that both structures will eventually be returned to their former state of grace.
Off Hwy 901 along the coast, you can ponder the ruins of Hacienda de Santa Lucía, an old sugar plantation a mile north of Playa Lucía. Don't expect a haunted mansion; there's only one wall left. Central Roig is the still active, old-time sugar hacienda and mill on the same road.
