This 18 hole - 900 dwelling golf project has been halted unfortunately for the residents of the area as it is an eyesore. Hopefully it will be completed one day. Adjacent to the motorway service area at junction 16 on the Autovia Málaga/Grananda A-92M

On the opposite side of the A-92M is Peñon de Solis - said to be the ancient Roman city of Ulisis

  • La época romana fue una de las más importantes en este territorio. Debido a los numerosos cerros que existen, considerados puntos estratégicos, se asentaron varias civilizaciones romanas a lo largo de todo el término municipal. Una de ellas es la “Ciudad de Ulisi”, en el Peñón de Solís. Según los indicios, y siguiendo los alineamientos de las villas encontradas, se insinúan varios caminos, vías o calzadas romanas secundarias. Una iría desde el Puerto de las Fresnadas hasta el Puerto de los Alazores, bordeando la falda occidental de la sierra. Otro itinerario iría desde el Puerto de las Pedrizas hasta los llanos de Salinas, pasando por el cortijo de la Higuera, el Tardón, Cerro Limón, Venta de José María, Cortijo del Río, Cortijo de los Llanos y Sartén Rota. El yacimiento de mayor interés es el de la Cuesta del Peo, pues debió de haber allí una villa romana de grandes dimensiones ya que los restos que se observan en la superficie ocupan casi tres fanegas de tierra.La casa debió tener cierto lujo pues se ha detectado la presencia de un mosaico policromado. Dicho mosaico se descubrió a principios de siglo XX. Por otro lado, y hasta no hace mucho tiempo, en el borde del camino había unos grandes sillares de piedra arenisca que procedían de dicho yacimiento, encontrándose junto a ellos una pequeña figura en bronce de la divinidad Tyché, que en la actualidad se encuentra en el museo de Antequera. 
  • Google translation  The Roman era was one of the most important in this territory. Due to the numerous hills that exist, considered strategic points, several Roman civilizations settled along the whole municipal term. One of them is the "City of Ulisi", in the Peñón de Solís. According to the indications, and following the alignments of the villas found, several roads, roads or Roman roads are insinuated. One would go from the Port of the Fresnadas to the Port of the Alazores, bordering the western slope of the mountain range. Another itinerary would go from the Port of the Pedrizas to the plains of Salinas, passing by the cortijo of the Higuera, the Tardón, Cerro Limón, Venta de José María, Cortijo del Río, Cortijo de los Llanos and Frying Pan. The site of greatest interest is that of the Cuesta del Peo, for there must have been a Roman villa of large dimensions, since the remains that are observed on the surface occupy almost three fanegas of tierra.La house had to have a certain luxury since it has been Detected the presence of a polychrome mosaic. This mosaic was discovered at the beginning of the 20th century. On the other hand, and not until a long time ago, on the edge of the road were a large sandstone ashlar that came from the site, and a small bronze figure of the divinity Tyché was found next to them. The museum of Antequera.

As an Architect with town planning experience; with information that these apartment blocks be demolished. My suggestion; that the lower ones be left as sheltered housing scheme for sale offering extra support from trained care staff 24-hours a day - that only the highest block be demolished. That the 4/5 star hotel could be located on the skyline but with a maximum of one/one and a half storey height (the roof being a garden 100% so that the building blends in with the nature)
