Sandwiched between the crystalline blue sea and green pine trees lies Aiguafreda, one of Spain's last largely unspoiled Mediterranean coves, which is threatened by a new building frenzy.On the other side of a hill overlooking the Aiguafreda cove six excavators are preparing land to build 26 luxury apartments with sweeping views of the Medes Islands, a protected area.About 60 apartments are also planned for the neighboring Sa Riera cove. And in the adjoining municipality of Pals the mayor is poised to give the green light for the construction of a thousand homes in a centuries-old pine forest.The municipality, which is home to 4,000 people, sees its population swell to over 20,000 during the peak holiday months.Greenpeace has sounded the alarm over the construction of a hotel at a protected beach at El Palmar near the southwestern city of Cadiz and two 30-story towers in Roquetas de Mar near Almeria in the southeast.
