Life in Culebrón is personal view of Spain and Spanish life as seen by a Briton living in a small village in Alicante province.
The other tabs link to similar blogs when I have lived in other places. The TIM magazine is an English language magazine I write articles for.

Knocking it all down

Pinoso, our local "Town Hall" town isn't exactly picturesque. It has some nice buildings in amongst the new concrete blocks but, in general, it is architecturally bland. That some charge could be levelled against the majority of towns in Alicante province with very few exceptions.

Nonetheless, they seem to be keen to demolish almost anything that remains of the old Pinoso.

When I went to get my newspaper the other morning half of the car park was closed off as they were knocking down a couple more buildings. It happens all the time. The new building that goes in its place will be better built with better facilities but there seems to be no concept of hanging on to the best of what remains or building new stuff that fits in with the old.

Almost as impressive as the changes to the County Council buildings in Huntingdon town centre. Walden House is no more.
