Marbella council is hoping that the four restaurants who recently had their Michelin stars renewed, will help bring more tourists to the town. The first step will be at the Feria Internacional de Turismo de Madrid (Fitur) where the four establishments, Dani García, El Lago, Skina and Messina will be taking part.

The aim is to highlight the quality of the gastronomy available in Marbella at the fair and to make the tourist attraction of the town less seasonal.

Although the programme of events is still to be confirmed, on Tuesday 16 January, the eve of the inauguration of the fair, the council will offer cocktails at the Santa Coloma Palace with the catering provided by Dani García. It is expected to be attended by over 200 guests.

The council in Marbella has given approval for Magda Hotels, the new owner of the old Don Miguel hotel, to carry out partial demolition work to some buildings that don't form part of its 70-million-euro project to relaunch the landmark hotel behind the town.

Members of the Spanish Royal Tennis Federation (RFET) voted at a meeting in Zaragoza on Wednesday for the Costa del Sol bid. As is etiquette, the captain of the Spanish team, recently appointed Sergi Bruguera, then needed to be consulted. He asked the players, who agreed with the choice of Marbella.
