Half a Million Euro Restoration for Marbella Castle

Marbella council has announced a significant restoration project for the city’s largest castle. The project, which is estimated to cost half a million euros, will focus on the castle that is not only a cultural hotspot but also a place of cultural interest in the city.

Restoration to Fortify and Repair the Monument

The restoration work will primarily focus on the eastern and northern sides of the castle. The project is expected to take approximately six months to complete. The castle, which dates back to the Middle Ages, fell into disrepair in the 20th century. This happened while luxury homes were being constructed adjacent to its walls, causing disappointment among many residents.

Plans Led by Yamur Arquitectura y Arqueología S.L.

The restoration plans are being spearheaded by Yamur Arquitectura y Arqueología S.L. The firm has proposed measures to better protect and conserve the castle. They also aim to roll back some modern development on the castle’s grounds that contradicts its rustic aesthetic.

Marbella Castle: A Nod to Spain’s Islamic Heritage

Marbella’s castle is a significant reminder of Spain’s Islamic heritage. It harks back to the reign of Abdurrahman the 3rd, one of the first caliphs of the Iberian Peninsula. The castle’s restoration is seen as a crucial step in preserving this important piece of history.
