Grande Hotel was built in 1955 in Mozambique, when it still was a Portuguese colony. It used to be one the Africa’s most luxury hotels. During the independence movement in 1963 the Grande Hotel became a home for the local soldiers. The army left the hotel in 1975, and it has been occupied by homeless people. Now more than 2,000 people live in the ruins of what used to be one of the world’s best hotels.
