In Alcúdia, a rather stunning building houses the Casa Consistorial de Alcúdia (town-hall). This ayuntamiento is said to be one of the most beautiful municipal town-hall buildings in all of Spain.
The edifice was built in 1929, eighty years ago this year. The then crown prince, Infante Don Jaime de Bourbon, plus the President of the Spanish Government, Miguel Primo de Rivera, made their way especially to Alcúdia to inaugurate the splendid new seat of a rather proud town council. It is reported that the construction cost the sum of 600,000 Pesetes at the time. It is not reported that any corruption, sleaze or extortion were involved in the proceedings.
On the occasion of its anniversary, a small commemorative book was published in a rather lavish fashion.
The photo was chosen from my archive. It was taken in Alcúdia, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: May 2nd, 2009. The time was 11:48:04.
