More than 50 years of…
The origin of Puerto Banús goes back to the 1960s, when its founder José Banús started to build a luxury residential area called New Andalusia. His encounter with Noldi Schreck, architect and designer of the legendary neighbourhood of Beverly Hills, had prompted in the entrepreneur the vision of a more ambitious, exclusive project with an international vision.
Puerto Banús was founded upon the concept of a Mediterranean village in the Andalusia style, with luxurious avenues adorned with colourful gardens bathed by the sea. The inauguration of the complex took place in 1970, with more than 1500 invited guests. Among them, were members of Spanish royalty, Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco as guests of honour, and an extremely young Julio Iglesias who delighted those present with his music.
The best-known firms in the world soon set up in the new fashionable destination. In a few years, it came to be the favourite leisure haunt of the most important personalities in the world. Since then, the streets of Puerto Banús have been trodden by royalty, singers like Prince, Rod Stewart and Maria Callas and artists of the calibre of Sean Connery, Liz Taylor and Brigitte Bardot, among many others.
