The Golden Mile, Marbella

gay friendly lawyer in MarbellaMost people familiar with the Costa del Sol have heard of the Golden Mile, a stretch of land between Marbella center and Puerto Banus. Today the Golden Mile is home to luxurious mansions, some of them belonging to the Jordanian and Saudi Arabian Royal family and luxurious apartment complexes such as Puente Romano, La Trinidad and La Alhambra del Mar. Why has the Golden Mile become so popular with the rich and famous?

One of the founding fathers of the current Marbella and the Costa del Sol as we know it, is Prince Alfonso of Hohenlohe. He converted his family estate bought by his father Prince Maximilian Egon in 1947 into the Marbella Club Hotel in 1954. 20 years later, a little further away (about one mile), he launched the Puente Romano complex. Some of the worlds famous and rich bought plots of land in and around the area of the Marbella Club Hotel and Puente Romano. This gave way to the name Golden Mile, today the Golden Mile has expanded and is about 5 kilometers long and reaches all the way till the foothills of the La Conch mountain including Nagueles and Sierra Blanca.

(English) How to erase your past from internet

internet newsA few years ago, a senior executive at a Spanish multinational was given a generous retirement package – so generous that it became the subject of some comment in the media. As a result, when his name was typed into internet search engines, notably Google, it was the main story that came up. He considered this a breach of his privacy, as well as a potential danger to his family, and decided to hire the services of a firm that specializes in removing data from the internet. His name is no longer associated with that story online.

The European Court of Justice last week ruled that internet search engines are required to remove links to information if the individual or entity to which they refer believes they are in breach of their privacy, or if the information is damaging to their reputation. Google has already announced that it will soon be making a tool available in Europe to remove offending links, although companies already exist in Spain offering the service. They do this by contacting the source publication in question, whether it is a newspaper, official body, blog or chat or discussion forum.
