Refurbishment work to a building on Calle Modéjar just outside the centre of Estepona has unveiled a highly valuable 18th-century mural on the façade of a building.

The artwork, created in Baroque style, has aroused the interest of many experts, given the amount of different geometric, anthropomorphic, zoomorphic and architectural motifs, as well as Spanish-American elements atypical of the time, that have been fitted into such a small space.

The town's Heritage councillor, José María Guerrero, said that the town hall was collaborating with owners of building to help to restore such murals when they are discovered.
