This extensive residential area of one million plus square meters, urbanized over two decades ago by a well-known development company is famous for its extravagant villas and spacious plots, but it also offers niche residential complexes of townhouses and apartments. The visionary promoter of Sierra Blanca, Pedro Rodriguez believed that the Costa del Sol could become the “Florida of Europe” and began to urbanize what is now, one of the most luxurious urbanizations in Spain.
The urbanization of the streets is very simple and structured, wide and impeccably clean, with security cameras, as grand as avenues. All the streets are named in accordance to famous composers such as Wagner, Mozart, Bach, Verdi, Vivaldi etc…On the north and west side, the urbanization is surrounded by natural park land which allows pleasant relaxed walks or long hiking routes. On the East side the street “Calle Listz” borders the neighboring villa development of Cascada de Camoján with equally luxurious villas. On the south, the urbanization finishes on the long street “Calle Albioni”.
The 24 hours’ security service, peaceful environment, natural surroundings and the privacy of Sierra Blanca is highly appreciated by its exigent and wealthy residents.
