Let’s walk
A WALK to mark Andalucia Day wil take place on Sunday, February 28. Small groups of 10 people can take part in the five kilometre walk which leaves Cruz del Monte, making its way to San Silvestre before reaching the Hermitage of San Antón, stopping for a typical Andalucian breakfast on the way.
Smart move
The Department of Tourism at Rincon de la Victoria Council has met with the State Society for the Management of Innovation and Technologies (SEGITTUR) in the first steps towards turning the municipality into a smart tourist destination. In a first virtual gathering, the initiative for the management of the destination was presented.

No positives
A MASS screening in Archez, currently the only municipality with permiter closures still in place, has seen no new positives after 79 of the 135 residents invited turned up to take a test this week. However, Mayor Mari Carmen Moreno Córdoba, stressed the importance of “not lowering our guard”.
Daily meals
