After years of delays and endless paperwork, Álora Council has finally got the funding to repair the Las Torres castle, considered by many to be one of the most important historical monuments in the Guadalhorce district.
The castle was an Arab fortress, although of Phoenician origin, and was declared a national monument in 1931. The Council has been trying to get funding to restore the castle for the past decade.
The total cost of the project is estimated at €1,090,000, with the central government funding 75%, the Council 25%.
The old cemetery inside the castle was closed earlier this year. The castle sits high on a hill and gives great views of the surrounding area.
