Situations arise where public opinion overwhelmingly feels that the law is an ass and where authorities struggle to make a convincing case that it is not.
For the first time in almost sixty years, there were no terraces last summer.
The town hall says it feels "persecuted" by the Costas.
The Costas Authority has ordered the demolition; the town hall is arguing that it has heritage importance.
The set period for demolition has elapsed and the restaurant is still open.
Tomeu Cifre says that the terrace was sealed off and then removed because it didn't have a licence.
“Unesco doesn’t insist on laws, but they are clearly a byproduct of heritage sites. Unesco lists all manner of laws in different countries and territories...”
The Costas Authority has ordered the demolition of El Bungalow.

The Costas Authority will be relinquishing most of its control of the coasts in the Balearics.
