    This was an awesome holiday explore - Just about worth the anger from Mrs The Wombat :mad

    It is a huge place, on the outskirts of Alcudia. Not my bag, but it once hosted extravagant entertainment nights of cabaret, acrobatics, & Spanish flaminco and once had Julius Iglesais on stage (a famous Spanish singer who sold 300 million records apparently) There were horses on stage, and lights and sound, with an expensive 3 course dinner.

    It is now obviously inhabited by homeless people and dogs. There was a few piles of fresh dog shit in the arena. It kind of reminded me of hiking in Canada, and coming across some fresh bear scat, and making a quiet, hasty retreat.
    Before I could go backstage, my visit was cut short by an involuntary cough, which attracted the attention of some dogs, so I had to make a rapid escape.

    I finally got some history from a local... It was not open long. It was once a grand place with thick carpets & decor, that attracted dozens of coach loads from all over the island. It had 2000 people at capacity, but went bankrupt and closed in 1993.
    Since its closure, it has a dark history. Attempts to reopen have failed, and as it is 4 stories deep in places, a few people have fallen to their deaths.

    It gets worse… There was even a notorious murder here a few years back.
    :eek:

    Cheers LE and Georgie.
    Ric, I will try and work out how to resize the photos mate.

    Thanks jST - I think the backstage area is worth seeing when your next there. I unfortunately had to make a rapid escape

    Really like this report and your shots, looks like there's some decent graff amongst the shitty tags if you look closely too. Well done for not falling to your death or being murdered, perhaps the reason why the missus had concerns perhaps??
