The town hall has unleashed a captivating challenge by inviting bids for the construction of the avant-garde Mercacentro covered market. With a staggering budget of 13 million euros and an estimated completion time of 18 months, this remarkable project promises to redefine the realm of indoor markets.

Nestled in the heart of the old market area on Avenida Alcalde Clemente Díaz Ruiz, this visionary masterpiece has been meticulously designed by the brilliant minds of Verdasco Arquitectos + González + Getinsa.

Brace yourself for a structure that transcends boundaries! Complying with European directives on sustainability, ecological quality, and energy efficiency, the new building aims for the prestigious A energy rating. It's destined to be a beacon of environmental responsibility, boasting the title of a nearly zero-emission building (NZEB).

Spread across a staggering 11,000 square meters, this magical realm will house a mesmerizing array of 39 market stalls within its main commercial area. But that's not all! Venture up to the first floor, and you'll discover a whimsical world of bars and restaurants, providing a delectable haven for gastronomic enthusiasts. And if you're seeking breath-taking views that will sweep you off your feet, ascend to the second floor, where a delightful roof-top terrace awaits, beckoning visitors to revel in panoramic splendour.

But who shall have the honour of transforming this dream into a tangible reality? The clock is ticking! Interested companies are cordially invited to take part in this enchanting endeavour by submitting their awe-inspiring proposals. Let the magic of creation unfold as the deadline for submissions approaches on Monday, 26th June.

Fuengirola's new indoor market is poised to become a testament to architectural wonder, blending innovation, sustainability, and a touch of whimsy. So fasten your seatbelts, for a captivating journey awaits within the halls of this "Market Marvel."

Estepona Sun Kisses Presenter’s Cheek with Warm, Spotlight Embrace!

With the sun casting its radiant, daily spotlight overhead, Estepona rolls out its golden sands as a welcome mat, beckoning “A Place in the Sun” celeb, Jasmine Harman, and her delightful troop - husband and kiddos included - into its warm embrace for a delightful act titled: New Beginnings. Jasmine, no stranger to the tantalizing dance between dwellings and dreamers with her two-decade waltz on Channel 4, has been the fairy god-presenter, sprinkling home-finding magic dust from Portugal to Malta to Cyprus. Yet, after years of orchestrating homey happily-ever-afters, she’s chosen to pen her own, right in the heart of sun-soaked Estepona. “It was a canvas of years in the painting,” Jasmine confided in Hello!

"Spain and England's World Cup Waltz: The Pinnacle Plays of the Pitch!"

 "La Roja and the Lionesses set for a Down Under Duel in Sydney! Prepare for a football fiesta as Spain's La Roja squares off against England's Lionesses at the iconic Stadium Australia this sunny Sunday, 20 August. The stakes? Just the little matter of the Women's World Cup title. For both teams, it's uncharted territory. They've danced around the finals before, but never quite made it to the last tango. Spain's road to the finals was nothing short of a nail-biter. With a thrilling 2-1 victory over Sweden, where the scoreboard remained dormant until the last 10 minutes, La Roja proved they love a little late-game drama. As for the Lionesses, they showed their mettle by taming the co-hosts, Australia, with a captivating 3-1 win. Now, with the world watching, both squads are on the prowl, each looking to pounce and claim their first-ever Women's World Cup crown. May the best team win (and the fans get to enjoy some fantastic football)!"

Marbella's Shoreline Set for a 'Sand-sational' Upgrade!

With a 'can-do' spirit that would make a sand castle builder proud, the Marbella town hall is steering a beach revitalisation project right off the pages of a fairy tale. Like a magnificent sand migration, the process kicked off at Las Chapas-Alicate and will sweep through Casablanca, La Fontanilla, and San Pedro Alcántara.  Mayor Ángeles Muñoz let slip that a mountainous 120,000 cubic metres of sand would be borrowed from the town hall’s own treasure chest to finance this sandy renaissance. "The central government seems content playing in the shallow end, leaving us to dive deep for a definitive coastline stabilisation solution," Mayor Muñoz said, clearly not one to bury her head in the sand. In a stroke of midnight genius, the work is taking place under the cloak of darkness - from midnight until 8am - sparing sun-seekers and local business the sight of bulldozers invading their tranquil beaches. Mayor Muñoz confessed that the project couldn't have hit the groun
