Updated 23 September: Clearly it was a few months rather than weeks, but work is going ahead today on the demolition of Casa de los Bethencourt, the derelict house on the promenade in Los Cristianos.

Original post 22 March: Arona Ayuntamiento has announced the imminent demolition of the Casa de los Bethencourt on the front in Los Cristianos. The council says that the building has become a significant health risk, and that the demolition should take place in the next few weeks, restoring the coastal space of the paseo de Los Tarajales to the public, and allowing for the refurbishment and updating of the park above. The council says that the works are part of the overall plan that has been carried out over recent months, works including reformation of the Chalet de los Peña, demolition of the Casa de los Soprani and the renovation of the Paseo de Los Tarajales, currently underway.  Here is an overhead image from Google maps supplied by the council to show the building concerned.
