The city of Córdoba is reforming its taxi bylaws, after a campaign by consumer union FACUA, which says they’re a decade out of date. Trouble is, the new bylaws aren’t much better, and FACUA turned nasty over the issue. One contentious little new bylaw rules that if you ring for a taxi via a service, the meter drops from the second the driver gets the order, and not from when the client actually climbs aboard.
And this time, they’ve remembered to include a bull. It’s taken 10 years and 3,5 million euros to refit the museum, but the Museo Taurino de Córdoba has finally reopened to the public. But, with an eye to the change in public opinion, the gist of the museum has changed slightly – it’s now more about the bulls than the bullfighters.
On the 2nd of March 2006, the Catholic Church of Cordoba quietly registered the famous Cordoba Mezquita as its own property, paying €30 in registration fees and no taxes due. This was permitted under the 1988 mortgage act, which permitted the long term users of properties to claim the ownership of the building. Under the law, if “interested parties” – the National Government – does not contest the registration within 10 years, the ownership is Continue reading Catholic Church about to “steal” the Corboda Mezquita for 30 euros
The Junta has demanded that the government reveal its long term plans for Almeria airport, in order to be able to plan their tourism strategy around the destiny of the airport. Seville says that Almeria, Jerez, Granada and Cordoba airports are all vitally important to their regions, but that it cannot plan for the future unless Madrid reveals what it plans to do to the airports – upgrade, stagnate or close them. Almeria airport is Continue reading Junta demands to know long term plans for Almeria airport

Amazing bit of poker playing, this one. Despite the fact that the greedy, grasping bishops of Cordoba ran their bank into the ground speculating on dodgy real estate deals (Cajasur was bankrupt and kept alive only by a wallet transfusion by the Bank of Spain to save ZP having a red face), they’ve managed to merge the damn thing with a properly run bank (Unicaja), get their losses covered (1.024 million euro cheque from the Continue reading Goodbye Unicaja, hello UniCajaSur (and a bit for the blighters in Cordoba Church too)
Step up those who bet on “30 days” and collect your winnings. That’s how long it took for FlySur (www.flysur.com), “Andalucias first airline” to cease operations. They were flying out of Cordoba airport with a single plane, to Barcelona, Vigo & Bilbao. It seems that Cordoba airport only has a “mobile” control tower, so when it was towed elsewhere, or if it was foggy, they had to land in Seville. This, as you can image, Continue reading FlySur goes bust – only took a month
