Maintaining the Royal summer residence costs a pretty penny


THE summer residence of the Spanish Royal couple in Cala Major costs €1.54 million in taxpayers’ money every year.

According to figures made public by the Balearic Regional Government by request of the Mes Per Mallorca political coalition, the cleaning and water consumption bill of the Marivent Palace in 2013 totalled a little over €350,000, while €84,000 was invested in maintaining the gardens.
