Last year I wrote about proposed works at TdM, These have now begun, and for all intents and purposes TdM will be closed over the next few months while the work goes on.
The Block is getting a face-lift. The facades are being repaired, the railings replaced with ones that conform to EU standards, and the balconies and being repaired and retiled. The work began a little while ago and is expected to last at least 5 months, so until March, more or less.
However if you had set your heart on coming out for Carnaval and staying at TdM and are willing to put up with a little bit of inconvenience (dust and no access to balconies) let us know and we can see what we can do for a very special TdM rate!
