To mark the anniversary of 50 years of The Skol apartments in Marbella, Victor José Martínez González, the current administrative secretary of the community of owners published a book "50 Aniversario Skol Marbella".
The celebrations were attended by the Mayoress of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz Uriol, who wrote:
"The emblematic Skol building is one of the few buildings during the history of Marbella that has clearly left its distinct mark over the city’s skyline.
It was in the later half of the twentieth century, when the entrepreneur Rafael Zea chose the city of Marbella to develop his project, which now forms part of the living history of Marbella.
His pioneering spirit created a turning point in the tourism sector in Marbella and throughout the Costa del Sol. In the early 90’s the building changed its use to apartments. However it maintains its original identity and continues to be a city landmark.
The architectural design with its three buildings of various heights purposely facing the sea, is an excellent example of the residential tourism style of architecture.
This book is an excellent way to discover the Skol building, the history of Marbella and its tourism. I am sure that everyone will enjoy reading it."
