    Google Valdecañas, a large illegal development in Extremadura. The Court of Appeal recently upheld the regional court decision of illegality. However, the development consists of luxury villas and a golf course for the wealthy. Will these houses be razed to the ground as was that of the Priors, and if not why not?
    By the way, the article in Spanish in your link just shows why things are as they are in Spain: complicated, full of twists and turns, unclear and in some areas open to interpretation!

    Chopera, with all due respect, would you like to put a date on when the Valdecañas resort will actually be destroyed? I’ll believe it when I see it!!

    In the early 2000’s a ten storey hotel was built on the beach at Algarrobico in the Cabo de Gata national park (Almeria) . In 2006 work was stopped by the court as the land was part of a site of outstanding natural beauty. There have been numerous legal decisions since 2006, confirming the illegality. However, the Andalucia Supreme Court has astonished everyone by now pronouncing the land as buildable. So if there were any hopes out there that Spain would soon put its house in order, dream on. “Spain is different”.
