WORK on the new Plaza-Mirador in Estepona has entered its final stages and is set for completion this Tuesday.
An opening ceremony and proclamation is due to follow the finishing of building with a fair also taking place. Estepona’s council said in a statement the project would offer a “new perspective” on one of the town’s best-known areas.
The Plaza, by the Avenida de El Carmen near the town’s El Cristo beach, will cover a total of 1,000 square metres when finished.
It will feature a skylight, shaded areas for people to gather in and viewpoints looking out over the surrounding area.
“The Plaza-Mirador will see the creation of a new tourist centre to serve the demand for leisure and entertainment in the city all year round,” the council said.
Tourism promoters said the venue would create jobs year round and while offering a “novel and modern” image for the area.
The project also includes the creation of a 3,000 square metre public green space surrounding El Cristo beach.
It will feature links to the coastline which will mean the town will be joined up to its coast by walkways. The Plaza-Mirador will also be available to hire for parties and events.
