Cutting Edge Tourism in Spain

And over here you can see the grass grow:

MARBELLA - A new guided tour around Marbella's murkier side takes in all the sites involved in a multi-billion euro civic corruption scandal

Tourists are shown the town hall, where the now-dissolved city council sat and allegedly took backhanders from property developers in return for lucrative bulding permissions.

They are also taken to the homes of some of the leading suspects in the scandal which blew up last year in the Costa del Sol city.

These include Marisol Yague, the former mayor, and Juan Antonio Roca, the one-time head of urban planning who is said to be the brains behind the scam.
