The mansion owned by French-Romanian musician and producer Michael Cretu is being demolished.
After a long struggle between the property owner and nature activists, the supreme court in Madrid recently ruled that the house had indeed been built illegaly, specifically pointing out the exceeding dimensions of the property.
The controversial property dates back to 1995-1996 when the building began without any building permit. The demolition of the property will cost in excess of 300,000 euros and requires heavy machinery which had to brought to Ibiza from the mainland.
Cretu says he will seek damages of 18 million euros for the demolition of his 3,000 square meter property.
