The city of Marbella will launch this summer a project to install four points of free Wi-Fi. One of them will be in the Plaza de la Iglesia in San Pedro, along with the Plaza de la Fontanilla and Plaza de los Naranjos in Marbella and Plaza Antonio Banderas in Puerto Banús.

This project will facilitate the deployment of fibre optic and Wi-Fi by several companies.

Marbella aspires to be considered smart, sustainable and healthy city. To that purpose the town has been incorporated into the Spanish Network of Cities for Climate and the Smart Cities Network.

Among the main measures promoted by the City to make Marbella a Smart City, are the Land Information System and digital agenda to coordinate up to 152 telematics processes.

We hope that all this will serve to improve the quality of life for residents and visitors to our wonderful and smart city.

With Europe and in particular Spain hovering on the edge of an economic avalanche, and with the poor Euro struggling increasingly each day, why are we at Altavista Property seeing an increase in foreign buyers looking again to invest in Spanish property? According to the Bank of Spain, in 2011 foreigners invested over 4,700 Million Euro’s into the Spanish property market, showing a rise of 27% on 2010. There is no reason by 2012 shouldn’t produce the same results despite whatever fate awaits the Euro or the Spanish economy.
