THE Marbella Council has spent €800,000 to complete the renovation of the Plaza de Toros de Marbella and provide it with all the necessary security measures to once again host cultural events.
Mayor, Ángeles Muñoz, and Councillor for Works, Diego López visited the rehabilitated venue and said how pleased she was to see that what had become a dilapidated building could return as a showcase for shows of all types.
The work was completed in seven months despite delays caused by the lockdown after the Council agreed with the previous company that held the concession to terminate and until such time as the safety arrangements were complete, the Council has not looked to approach any new management company.
Work was extensive and included new wiring, installation of fire hydrants, alarm systems, new toilets, taking into account the needs of those with disabilities and repainting the entire building
