Living on the Edge

Doesn't the idea of living in a house or apartment perched high on a cliff

Doesn't the idea of living in a house or apartment perched high on a cliff with uninterrupted sea views sound really appealing? Unhappily for some of the residents of Sa Caixota, more commonly known as the urbanisation Vista Alegre this dream is becoming a nightmare.

Recent heavy rains have caused landslides leaving many of the streets in a terrible state and some houses have lost their foundations on the cliff side leaving them in danger of demolition.

The Vista Alegre area has now become a political football kicked about by two opposing politicians, both named Josep Marí Ribas, who needless to say both blame the other's party for whatever faults in construction have allowed the situation to happen. None of this of course helps the residents of the area who are left living on the edge of a precipice.
