Three-quarters of the funding required for the refurbishment of Marbella castle is to come from the Ministry of Public Works (Fomento), it has been confirmed.

The project, with a budget of almost 500,000 euros, will address a number of issues affecting the outer wall of the Castillo-Alcazaba complex at the heart of the Old Town which is at serious risk of deterioration.

This is just one of 27 conservation projects which will be subsidised in Andalucía, worth a total of 17.5 million euros.
