sugar-factoryLIFE looks sweet for a former sugar factory near Marbella.

The Trapiche El Prado factory’s fortune is set to change, with Marbella Town hall and the Junta de Andalucia  deciding that urgent work needs to be carried out.

The derelict building was bequeathed to Marbella Town Hall in 1992 and looked set to be transformed into an old peoples home.

However, the building has been abandoned and grown more ruined ever since, with the town hall struggling to fund the reformation.

A campaign group, Plataforma en Defensa y Mantenimiento del Trapiche del Prado, has decided to tackle the walls, remove trees and clear vegetation first, before moving on to the rest of the building.
