Madrid bench among city’s prime real estate

SPANISH property rental portal Idealista has taken down a prank advert for a Madrid park bench priced at €750.

The adveriser acted following the introduction of a bylaw in the city which will see beggars fined €750 if they are caught asking for money.

Prankster Iñigo Andiarena told the Spanish version of the Huffington Post: “If you get a €750 fine for begging, sleeping rough on the street bench is just as expensive as a luxury flat in the city.

“We´ll carry on posting the as on different rental sites to show that right now the highest rental costs in Madrid are for people sleeping rough on street benches: €750 for two square meters.
