I think most people couldn't take a look, until now, on images with detailed views of the area from where Madeleine's McCan was abducted. This a rear view of the building where McCann family had their apartment. The window signaled with an arrow is the room where Madeleine was and, probably, it was through this window she was taken from the room.

This a view of the path from McCann's family apartment to Tapas Restaurant. The red arrow points to the front area of the building where, on the ground floor, is the apartment, whose back window is pictured on the first photo. Blue arrow chows the way to a closed area of the Resort, where is the Tapas Restaurant, swimming pool, kindergarten, and other facilities. The entry to this area is controlled and under surveillance.
