No planes are allowed to fly over Lionel Messi’s mansion in Barcelona. But there is a reason for it.
“No planes allowed.” That’s the sign Lionel Messi could install at the gate of his luxurious $7-million mansion in the outskirts of Barcelona.
It’s official, the planes are legally forbidden from flying over his estate. Curiously, the Argentine’s house is situated in the town of Gava, just six miles from Barcelona’s main airport El Prat which could cause some inconveniences.
However, it’s certainly not Messi who dislikes the aeroplane noises so much. In fact, it all comes down to Spanish law.
The town of Gava is highly protected by environmental regulations. The aircraft’s volume and gas emission could be dangerous for the precious natural wildlife in that area.
