IN the 1980s, the wording Marbella Auditorium was placed in a high area overlooking the Nagüeles Quarry.
Due to the weather and natural wear and tear the letters started to deteriorate and actually became a potential hazard as they could have collapsed and caused a landslide.
The original letters have been removed, completely refurbished and restored to pride of place on land belonging to the Marbella Council not only as a safety precaution but to establish the proud sign once again as a piece of Marbella heritage.
The actual cost of the work which was carried out in the main by a local company was €47,577 and all of the unused material was safely removed and placed in an official landfill.
