Fewer lanes
IN a pilot experiment, the Benalmadena Council is reducing the number of lanes available to drivers on Avenida Antonio Machado following a mobility study which recommended more space for pedestrians in the hope that this would also encourage the use of more non-polluting means of transport.

FUENGIROLA Council is organising a free Escape Room activity, to be held Colores de Los Boliches building on Saturday, June 26. Aimed at those aged from 12 to 35 who like Harry Potter, registration is possible by sending an email to [email protected].
Religious art
THE Torremolinos Council has received a collection of more than 130 works of popular religious art donated by Dr. Aser Seara and is now looking to find a permanent location for what is probably the largest collection of its kind in Malaga Province. Dr Seara built up this collection since the 1960s and wants to ensure that it will be on public display.
