Atalayas


This was the first shopping mall in Murcia (as known today, supermarket, shops, cinemas, bars, fast food restaurants). I remember when it opened in 1994, and the day of the opening kilometers of traffic jams formed as it was the great novelty at that time.
Today, with large shopping center open on the outskirts of the city, the number of visitors has fallen to such an extent that the theaters were closed.
About Atalayas word: The watchtower is a type of fortification used in many parts of the world. It differs from a regular tower that its primary use is military and that is usually an isolated structure. Its main objective is to provide a high and secure from which to make military observations.
