Rafael Nadal has long kept a secret secret when he will give his childhood love Xisca Perello the word yes. The Spanish media not only announced that October 19 would be the big day, but they also announced the first details of the mega-break.
The wedding takes place at Nadals House in Mallorca. This is not celebrated anywhere, but on the most expensive property on the island! "La Fortaleza" is located in the north of Majorca on the bay of Pollença and has an estimated value of about 137 million francs.
By choosing this place, Nadal also ensures that the press receives the least possible of his party. Because "the fortress", which is located on a site of 87,000 square meters, is only accessible by land via a single private road. In addition, it is well secured with an iron gate, cameras and barbed wire. This should make access to the paparazzi difficult.
Big names on the guest list
And it certainly offers enough space for the expected 500 guests. In total, eight buildings can accommodate 17 rooms. The property also includes various gardens, two swimming pools and private access to several bays.
The guest list is as exclusive as the venue of the celebration. NBA star Pau Gasol, football coach Julen Lopetegui, Nadal coach Carlos Moya, singer Enrique Iglesias, Juve star Cristiano Ronaldo and ex-king of Spain Juan Carlos received an invitation. He recently visited the Nadal's Tennis Academy and, with Xisca Perello, proved his talent in table football.
And also a guest from Switzerland is expected. Because the rival and permanent friend of Nadal, Roger Federer (38 years) should also have received an invitation. The maestro will not be the only tennis cracker. Fernando Verdasco and Feliciano Lopez are also expected in La Fortaleza.
Nothing stands in the way of a sumptuous party.
