This week the demolition of a ruined property in the Miraflores area of Santa Cruz de Tenerife began at number 23 Calle Juan Padron, and should soon be completed. The street had to be closed for safety reasons.
The Tenerife Government has reported that this house is not included in the Historical Heritage Catalogue. Officials are now waiting for reports on the rest of the ruined properties in this street to identify if they have historical value, and if not then they will also be demolished.
Some local buildings in this area have architectural protection, but no more houses will be demolished until agreement is reached between Tenerife Government and the City Council of Santa Cruz.
