Smile La Fortaleza

Front page of today's Bulletin, picture and headline, "SOLD".
Inside article says the property has been sold to "An English banker"
"It is thought that the new English owner is thought to have paid between 30 and 35 million euros."

Sign of the crisis as it was valued at 125million in 2008! If only those lucky numbers had come up last week I could have increased the offer.

Default The Fortress

The records show that the Fortress was built as such in 1634 to provide protection from Pirates.
