IT will cost just over €7 million to destroy the illegal Algarrobico hotel, which still stands proud inside the Cabo de Gata Natural Park in Almeria.

Environment Minister Miguel Arias Canete has confirmed both central government and the Junta are ‘fully in agreement’ that the 411-room eyesore should be knocked down.

In November Madrid and Andalucia signed an agreement stating central government will shoulder the cost of demolition while the Junta will clear up the debris and restore the park back to its original state.

Demolition costs were originally estimated at €300 million.
