    It seems these homes have been destroyed – not without lots of painful events and polemics. The coastal law of 1998 has prohibited any construction within certain limits from the coast, applying it retroactively also to homes built much earlier in time (but not to the luxury hotels on the sandy beaches and rocky lines, of course).

Incidentally, no official news nor evidence is available of these specific homes having been demolished too. And the big hotels are still there too and pumping money.
