MALAGA’S Urban Development Department has ordered the owners of the infamous ‘Cortijo Jurado’ to go ahead with its refurbishment.
The property is commonly refered to in Malaga as a haunted house as there have been numerous reports of mysterious voices and strange sounds at the derelict mansion.
Work ceased at the site in 2007 when the promoter, Mirador de Campanillas, was embargoed. The planning permission was extended in 2009, and earlier this year the department withdrew it, meaning that the city hall could sell the property to allow work to continue.
It was bought by Promociones Pantie, who claim that work will start within “a couple of weeks”.
The building is in a state of disrepair since the structure was exposed to air and damp after work begun. The shell of the four-star hotel, which planned to open in 2006, is below the massive 19th century mansion built by the influential Heredia family from Malaga.
