The Dukes of Palma are concluding the restoration works of their new house. Infanta Cristina and Iñaki Urdangarín plan to move to the new home before the Summer. Although still in works, the house that the Dukes of Palma bought in Pedralbes in October 2004 already has become one of the attractions to tourists that visit the most exclusive district of the city of Barcelona.

The house that belonged to the lawyer Mario Blacksmith was bought by six million euros and now hardly conserves any vestiges of its original structure. The initial budget of 600,000 euros in reforms has gone off and has now surpassed the million euros. The transformation of the house has been total.

From the original house of three floors that the architect Vilallonga built in 1952 only part of the structure was maintained. The eight windows in French style which used to bring light into the main room of the house have now been replaced by an ample window, and the trees, which once protected the facades from the indiscrete glances, have been destroyed.

The original interior has had worse luck, since it was completely demolished. The walls have been demolished with the purpose of obtaining ample spaces and much more light than the original ones. The house has also won surface, since it has been extended to the old garden, for the inhabitable surface now surpasses the 1,200 square meters that it already had.

The property, which counts on an enormous garden, swimming pool and sport zone, occupies an extension of 2,150 square meters and it is placed in the high zone of Barcelona. Given its exceptional characteristics, this space is much more comfortable for a numerous family that the 300 square meters flat where the clan Urdangarín-Borbón lives.

With the sale of this flat, also located in the district of Pedralbes, the family got part of the total price of the new house, which will probably serve to welcome now the other members of the royal family, whenever they visit the Catalan branch.

Hundreds of friends and relatives dismiss Jesus Rollán

Infanta Cristina and her husband, Iñaki Urdangarín, to which Rollán had presented/displayed in the Games of Atlantá96, attended the religious act that preceded to the incineration. Both gave the condolence to the relatives and conversed minutes with many of the waterpolistas, to which it unites one narrow friendship to them

Hundreds of friends, between whom were the Dukes of Palm, and the maximum Spanish sport authorities, headed by Jaime Lissavetzsky, Secretary of State for Deporte, attended sepelio of Jesus Rollán, (Madrid, 1969), who was celebrated in the Tanatorio La Paz of Three Songs.

Its always sad to say goodbye to a good friend but the Dukes went to Rollan's ceremony and even after all his scandles they continued to be friends with him and helped through his addiction.

May he rest in peace

Iñaki cannot win: if he works then his position as son-in-law gets on the way, if he didn't work then people would start thinking of him as a kept man.:(

I thought he worked as a consultant for a sports apparel company? How shady could deals with such a company get? It's not as if he's dealing in insider trading tips or something like that.

The point of the article is that supposedly the Balearic Government (where Palma de Mallorca is) is paying Iñaki about 12 millon euro for sports publicity since it's his dukedom and he's a handball legend and people think that behavior is not fitting to a member of the Royal Family (which i don't believe).

Everyone is innocent unless proven the contrary so until then I'll believe in Iñaki

! Sad this boy's death ¡
He was a personage known , was nice and intimate. And remembered for having donated his medal of gold in a Olympic Games for a charitable act, a real sorrow that was finishing this way.:(

Another article on the Economics Prize, this time from the region:
http://www.elbierzodigital.com/bierzo/?noti=33739

There's another "scandal" new this time about Cristina and the president of Catalunya Jordi Pujol who's said to be exploiting the fact that the Urdangarin de Borbon family lives in Barcelona, I saw the article once but haven't been able to find it again, so if anyone can please post it.

Thanks a lot:)
