A judge in Malaga has ordered the demolition of a holiday home in Paraje Loma de la Cruz near Frigiliana, 12 years after the first complaint was lodged against the owner. The judge considered that a Frigiliana resident converted a farmhouse having obtained a licence for a rental property. The owner, a local woman with the initials S.M.N.D, has been ordered to pay a fine of 1,080 euros for an urban planning offence.
