|Hi there, I've recently been giving this plant for my windowsill by my girlfriends mum. She said she had grown it from a shoot from a plant that she was given from Spain - one that she described as living in rocks there.|
Am afraid I don't really have any more information about it to share.
Really hope someone can help.

Could you tell us from which part of Spain the plant was growing? Spain has a wide range of climates.
The stems look fleshy, are they 'succulent' like you would see on a Begonia?
I'm wondering if this is an escapee from gardens.

Copper Leaf (Chrysothemis pulchella)

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.

It certainly resembles that!
I'm curious though as the stems appear to be purple, where Chrysothemis pulchella has green stems and I can't find one otherwise. The description states the stems are light green in this book ..
I blew up a section of the photo, the stems might be partly green but appear to be covered in purple hairs. The stems look square!

|It could be in the family Gesneriaceae ..|

|Achimenes grandiflora is similar, but has it got hairy stems?|
Yes it has!

|It looks like a Plectranthus of some sort. I see the square stems of the Lamiaceae family. |
Plectranthus ciliatus is a good possibility (has the "purple hairs.") I'm too tired to investigate further at the moment!
, by the way!

|Hey all, firstly sorry for being so rude and not thanking you for the effort put into the answers ! |
Having researched on the great work above, I think it's a Plectranthus ciliatus.
Thanks again :)
