Son of Negro Durazo ...

It´s not clear how much influence "the people of Zihuatanejo" will have on the future of "El Partenón." As the news story states, the issue is now before the Mexican Supreme Court.

After Mexico City´s corrupt "top cop" Durazo was busted and sent to prision in 1984, "El Partenón" (modelled on the ancient Greek structure and overlooking Zihua Bay) was expropriated and fell under control of the State of Guerrero. In 2004, the Durazo family sued, unsuccessfully, to regain title to the impressive building (which among other curiosities features an exact replica of New York´s famous Studio 54 discoteque.)

In 2011, the State of Guerrero donated "El Partenón" to the University of Guerrero. The site is today administered by the Promotora de Turismo (Protur) and is open to the public.
