Messi and his wife Antonela have invested millions of dollars in this property and also bought the land adjacent to the house.

Worth mentioning, this house of Messi is in the no-fly zone, so no plane in the world can fly over his house. Specifically, Messi’s villa belongs to the Del Garraf wildlife park. According to Spanish environmental law, this population possesses critically endangered flora and fauna, which should be protected by law.
Meanwhile, aircraft noise pollution can disrupt the rich wildlife, so Spain has put a ban on flying around this area. Coincidentally, Messi’s house is located in that area, so he owns a property in the top quiet place on earth.
