Prince discovered the charms of Marbella in the summer of 1990, during a tour of Spain. Six years later, when he married his first wife, Puerto Rican dancer and singer Mayte García, he bought her a 900-square-meter villa set amid 6,000 square meters of grounds, nestling in the hills overlooking the Mediterranean resort.
This rambling 25-bedroom retreat in Cordoba, Andalusia,was designed by the Spanish architect, historian, and essayist Fernando Chueca Goitia (1911–2004) for himself. During the second half of the 20th century, Chueca oversaw the restoration of historic buildings throughout Spain, designed Madrid’s Almudena Cathedral, and wrote The History of Spanish Architecture. He also built himself this hunting lodge in Andalusian palatial style—an estate as grand as the rest of his oeuvre.
The most expensive house in Spain is located in Mallorca, and it is waiting for a big bank account to fall for it. Better to write it fully: fifty millions Euros. Or what is the same: more than eight thousand millions of the old pesetas.
The mansion has 3.500 square meters built, and 15.000 square meters of gardens. There are 8 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms. It also has two swimming pools, one outdoors and one indoors, spa, wine cellar, a cinema room, heliport, and beautiful views of Alcudia and Pollença bays.
Seeing the ostentatious entrance, with a front door created by the sculptor Isassy and a luxury railing, anyone can tell what comes next is not a common house. Built over imposing marble columns and impeccable style, it keeps waiting for someone to be its lucky owner.
