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.

Costa Cálida, Costa del Sol and Canary Islands are the hottest destinations
According to statistics, the destination which has come down in price most is the Costa Cálida (Murcia), where it is now possible to rent a house for an average of 24 euros per person per day, which is 40.56 per cent less than the 2011 prices.
These declines have also reached the Canary Islands, with rents falling by 38.85 per cent. Rental prices on the Costa del Sol (Malaga), dropped by 31.51 per cent, and on the Costa Tropical (Granada) rental prices have fallen by 23.22 per cent in 2012.

The Balearic Islands, meanwhile, remains the most expensive destination with regards to renting, with an average price of 54 euros per person per day, although this figure still represents a reduction of 21.6 per cent compared to 2011 data.
Overall, El Mundo reported that revenue from Spanish beach rentals showed a decline on average of nearly 17 per cent between the summers of 2011 and 2012.
The Palaces of Alhambra are one of those places you need to visit at least once in your life
The Nasrid architecture marked the end of the glorious period that started with the Umayyads in Cordoba in the 8th century. The architects of the Cordovan mosque, which was built a long time before the Alhambra, did not influence this architecture. It includes some of the typical elements of the andalusian architecture, such as the horseshoe arch with sprandel (square wide frame which envelopes the arch) and the arch scallops (arch scallop of triangular shape), as well as its own special elements such as the capitals of the columns of the Alhambra.
The greatest concern of the architects of the Alhambra was to cover every single space with decoration, no matter the size of the space. No decorative element was enough. Most of the interior arches are false arches, with no structure; they are there only to decorate. Walls are covered with beautiful and extremely rich ceramics and plasterwork. And the coverings have wooden frames that have been exquisitely carved, etc.
Just a hint of the uniqueness of the place. The Alhambra was built with its own special type of column, which is not used in any other building. This column has a very fine cylindrical shaft, the base of which has a big concave moulding and is decorated with rings on the top part. The capital is divided into two bodies and the first one, cylindrically shaped, has a very simple decoration and a prism with a rounded-angled base and stylised vegetal forms as decoration.
