    Línea Sultana: transporte que se niega a morir -Ve vídeo

    La Línea es uno de los pocos servicios que todavía ofrecen viajes diarios hacia el área metro. (Primera Hora)

    Nota de archivo: esta historia fue publicada hace más de 11 años.

    Presentado por

    PUBLICIDAD

    De aquí pa’ allá en la Línea Sultana.

    María Vega tiene 27 años, se hospeda en Río Piedras y cada 15 días viaja a Mayagüez para visitar a su abuela, quien se encuentra enferma. Vega no tiene carro, ni lo necesita. Cada domingo en la tarde llega a la oficina de la Línea Sultana, en Río Piedras y por $15 se monta en la guagua que la deja en Mayagüez.

    Como María, hay miles de pasajeros que utilizan o han utilizado alguna vez los servicios de La Línea, como comúnmente se le conoce.

    Fundada en el 1958, La Línea es uno de los pocos servicios de transporte público que todavía ofrecen viajes diarios hacia el área metro, a un bajo costo.

    “Supereconómico, tú no vas a conseguir un carro de aquí a allá por el precio que ellos tienen, y segundo, conozco a la mayoría de los choferes y me siento cómoda”, nos comentó Vega al enumerar algunas de las razones por las que selecciona la Línea Sultana a la hora de realizar sus viajes.

    Seguridad y economía

    El público que utiliza este medio de transporte es variado, desde jóvenes universitarios, profesionales, hasta ancianos. Para evidenciar el servicio, Primera Hora visitó la oficina de Río Piedras, un domingo a las 2:00 p.m. Allí comenzó nuestro viaje.

    La oficina estaba repleta de estudiantes, en su mayoría universitarios. En ella encontramos a padres que semanalmente dejan a sus hijos y depositan su confianza en ésta compañía.

    La atención de los choferes hacia los pasajeros es una de las cualidades de la compañía para mantener a su clientela y, por eso, muchos de ellos llevan años utilizando los servicios.

    José Couvertier, de 18 años, es estudiante de Ingeniería Química en el Colegio de Mayagüez, y lleva 5 años utilizando la Línea Sultana, dos años como estudiante universitario y tres como estudiante de la escuela superior especializada CROEM.

    “Es mejor en cuestión de economía y es seguro”, nos indicó Waleska Garay, madre del joven.

    El medio de transporte sale cada dos horas, iniciando sus viajes a las 5:00 de la madrugada, desde Mayagüez, y a las 6:00 de la mañána, desde Río Piedras; no obstante, comienzan a recoger pasajeros media hora antes de la hora de salida.

    El tiempo del viaje es de aproximadamente cuatro horas, según la cantidad de personas que vayan subiéndose a la guagua. En nuestro trayecto, luego de realizar varias paradas para recoger clientes en Bayamón, Dorado y Manatí, el vehículo se llenó con 11 pasajeros.

    Un descanso en Hatillo

    Casi a mitad del recorrido, es una tradición hacer una breve pausa en el restaurante El Buen Café, en Hatillo. Durante ese tiempo, las personas aprovecharon para estirar el cuerpo, ir al baño, comer alguna merienda o comprar algún billete de la lotería.

    Para José Lugo, quien lleva 10 años trabajando y fue nuestro chofer, lo que más le apasiona de su trabajo es interactuar con los pasajeros. “Estar siempre en la calle es lo que me gusta. Prefiero trabajar en la tarde y durante la semana, pero cualquier día es bueno, cualquier día se trabaja”, apuntó.

    Lugo, residente de Añasco, comenzó a trabajar para la empresa luego de hacer amistad con uno de los antiguos choferes, que al retirarse, le cedió su guagua. La empresa está registrada como una cooperativa, en la que cada chofer es dueño de su vehículo.

    ¡Y llegamos!

    Cuatro horas después de salir de Río Piedras, y luego de dejar a varios de los pasajeros en sus hospedajes, el chofer hizo su última parada en la oficina de la Línea Sultana, localizada en la Terminal Municipal de Carros Públicos.

    Ahora Lugo debe esperar de dos a tres días para volver a trabajar, ya que todos los choferes -21 en total- tienen que realizar un viaje, cada uno. Una vez los 21 conductores completen ese viaje, le tocará un segundo turno, o mejor dicho, un segundo viaje.

    De vuelta a San Juan

    Otro de los servicios que ofrecen es el envío de cartas y paquetes. En nuestro viaje de regreso, el lunes siguiente a las 6:30 de la mañana, llegó a las oficinas Ivonne Nieves.

    Nieves lleva más de 20 años utilizando ese servicio, aunque nunca se ha montado en ella, nos dijo. ¿Cómo? Es que sólo la utiliza para el envío de paquetes.

    “A mí me da la confianza de que el cliente va a recibir lo que le estoy enviando a la mano. Usualmente si se tratara de cualquier otra cosa uso otro medio, pero cuando se envía documentos que son irremplazables, realmente me gusta el servicio de “La Línea”, apuntó.

    Con la salida del sol y menos tránsito vehicular, la travesía de Mayagüez hacia San Juan resultó más corta, con todo y la clásica parada en Hatillo.

    El viaje tomó poco menos de cuatro horas. Damián Afanador, un ex policía que hace nueve años trabaja para la organización, fue el responsable de traernos de vuelta. En cada parada vimos pasajeros, en su mayoría, mayores de edad, contentos de llegar a sus destinos, sea Centro Médico, Puerto Nuevo o la oficina de “La Línea” en Río Piedras. El paquete también llegó.

    Para  más información, puede  llamar al (787) 765-9377, ó al (787) 767-5205.

    Luxury, historic and rare property in Italy | Villa Sultana in Ospedaletti | First Casino in Italy

    Sultana Villa! Among the most luxurious real estate in Italy and the world, Villa Sultana in Ospedaletti stands out with special chic — a monumental building with three domes, which once housed the first casino in Italy. Today, this prestigious, luxurious luxury villa is considered a historical monument of the country’s culture and the main attraction that tourists tend to see when they decide to visit the famous resort town of Ospedaletti.

    Today it is hard to believe that back in 1860 the commune of Ospedaletti was just a village of a handful of houses, but already in 1871 this sleepy fishing village woke up from its sleep. Was she woken up by the state rail company Societ? Anonima Ferrovia Alta Italia (S.F.A.I.), which, together with the government of the country, started the implementation of a grand railway construction project. Things were going well, and in 1974 the Ospedaletti railway station even acquired its own post office with a telegraph.

    The turning point in the history of Ospedaletti was August 30, 1880. It was on this day that the French company Lyonnaise Soci?t? Fonci?re decided to develop a small railway station and turn it into a real paradise for wealthy tourists. The impetus for this decision was that the management of the company — one of the leaders in the real estate market in France — visited Ospedaletti and was so fascinated by this place that they decided to urgently create everything necessary for recreation at any time of the year. The very next month, French investors acquired ownership of most of the land that belonged to the commune. This was followed by the start of the construction of twelve new spacious streets, the total length of which was 9430 meters. In parallel, expensive real estate is being built — elegant and even majestic buildings: the villas Auster, Belvedere, Clotilde, Ducha, La Tour, Christie, Cirio, Rosalia. Investors did not forget about luxury hotels to accommodate wealthy guests, building the Royal, Riviera, Metropol and Suiss hotels one after another. And finally, in 1883, the hotel «Queen Margarita» was built on the first coastline, and on Corso Regina Margherita street, the pearl of Ospedeletti — the luxurious villa «Sultana».

    French investors also took care of the construction of a road for omnibuses — large carriages drawn by one horse. On this road, connecting Ospedaletti with the famous resort town of San Remo, everyone could drive, and not just individual representatives of the nobility, which became another of its indisputable advantages. Let us add that it was in those years, during the years of large-scale construction and bright hopes, that the emergence of sectors of the economy began, which to a large extent determined the future of the commune. First of all, we are talking about tourism, which developed at a rapid pace thanks to fashionable hotels and a wonderful climate. In addition, the inhabitants of the former fishing village began to grow flowers very actively (primarily carnations), and the intensive development of floriculture began a few years after the first flower market in the country was created on the Station Square in Ospedaletti.

    And what about Villa Sultana? This remarkable monument of history and architecture is worth telling in more detail. And it is worth starting the story with a description of the building, which, when it was an elite entertainment club, like a magnet, attracted rich tourists from all over the world to its halls. Villa Sultana is located on a hill in the center of Ospedaletti, about 250 meters from the sea. The building is surrounded by a lush park with palm trees and tall trees, spread over a plot of 14,000 square meters, as well as an unusual-looking botanical garden. Work on the construction of the villa began in 1883 and lasted exactly one year. The authorship of this masterpiece belongs to a native of Nice, architect S.M. Biacini (1841-1913), assisted by Lord Jocelyn of Menton and Monsieur Bonfante of San Remo. The set designer was Mr. Morgari, inspector of the Museum of Fine Arts in Turin, while Mrs. Meroni, Fosati, Pavesi and Crespi were responsible for decorating the rest of the villa. Finally, the laurels of the organizer of the work on this project belong to Mr. Marmaglia from Turin. The most famous researcher of French Renaissance art, Garnier (1825-1898), wrote that the architect Biacini, working on the project of the Sultana Villa, took as a basis the sketches of the casino in Monte Carlo, built according to his own project between 1878 and 1979 years.

    One way or another, compared to other buildings in Liguria, Villa Sultana stands out for its unique architecture. In her appearance, the features of eclecticism of French origin, typical of the French Renaissance, immediately catch the eye. Like other buildings made in this style, all the refined luxury of the Villa «Sultana» is directly related to the use of architectural elements of the Italian Renaissance, similar in spirit to the great era of Michelangelo and da Vinci. Let’s take a short mental walk around the Sultana Villa, which will allow us to better imagine the external appearance and internal arrangement of this magnificent building. Starting from the Queen Margarita Hotel, we will walk along the paths of the park and go straight to the elegant central staircase. Climbing the marble steps, we will find ourselves in the atrium — a huge hall, which can rightfully be called the heart of the whole building. The extraordinary impression that the atrium of the Sultana Villa leaves is largely due to its grandiose size (the area of ​​the hall is 100 square meters) and an unusual octagonal shape. Another curiosity of the atrium was a window located right in the roof at a height of 25 meters from the ground. Through this window, sunlight poured freely into the atrium, allowing you to freely enjoy the cloudless sky of Italy.

    Unfortunately, the roof of the atrium, made in the form of a dome, also octagonal in shape, collapsed in 1989, and today one can only judge of its former splendor from the surviving photographs. From the atrium we can get into several rooms at once. This is a bar with an area of ​​35 square meters, a 60-meter service corridor and two side wings of the villa, each with an area of ​​​​about 65 square meters. In turn, from each wing opens a path to a gallery of about 180 square meters and a height of 9meters. Passing to the southern part of the gallery, we will be able to admire a beautiful view of the porch. You can also walk along the main facade of the building, where the path also runs — it ends near two semicircular terraces located on the sides of the villa. Villa Sultana was conceived as a casino, which means that its center was a gambling room. Later, after some redevelopment, an entertainment club was opened here, in which guests of the Riviera, brilliant aristocrats from Western and especially Eastern Europe, played and had fun, talked on a variety of topics and spent time serenely littering with money. In addition, social events, conferences, symposiums, various ceremonies and musical evenings were organized here. Entertainment halls, friendly atmosphere, delicious cuisine and magnificent balls, as well as the opportunity to get to know the most sophisticated audience and establish business relations, attracted the best guests of the country here.

    It is not for nothing that the Sultana Villa was associated with the concept of transfer, which was organized for even greater comfort of visitors. Immediately after arriving by train in Ospedalleti, noble tourists were met right at the station by wagons, and later by cars that delivered them to the famous place of fun. Soon, due to the diversity of the wealthy people who came here, it even became necessary to arrange prayer rooms for representatives of various religions and faiths. In special rooms of the villa, each in its own room, the representation of the German Evangelical Church, where Pastor Hartmann preached, the representation of the Anglican Church and two non-Catholic chapels. In 1884, the year of its opening, Villa Sultana received a gambling license issued by the prefect of Sanremo, thus becoming the first casino in Italy.

    Villa Sultana remained such until 1905, when the license was transferred to the casino of the city of Sanremo, which is still active today. Since then, the elegant villa has played the role of a private wealthy club, still hosting wealthy gentlemen. This continued until August 1914, when the outbreak of the World War put an end to the happy time that remained in history under the name of the Belle Epoque. At the beginning of World War II, the Sultana Villa, which had been closed for many years by that time, served as a home for military units until the end of the armed conflict and the victory of the USSR over Germany. Subsequently, the villa has undergone a slight refurbishment. Certain changes have affected the internal architecture, which made it possible to use this building as a private residence. The villa remained a private residence until the end of the 50s, when it suffered the same sad fate as many other monuments of the cultural heritage of Italy.
