El Repilado is one of the dependant villages of Jabugo located within the Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche Natural Park, 4kms west of Jabugo. There are two theories for the origin of the name; the first argues that El Repilado is named after the first family that settled in these lands.

Hinojales is located within the Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche Natural Park, in the far north of the province, west of Cañaveral de León. It is situated within limits of villages in Badajoz (Extremadura, the region north of Andalucia) and has approximately 392 inhabitants.

The Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche natural park encompasses 184,000 hectares, an impressive 90% of it covered by woodland of mainly Mediterranean oak. The landscape is full of contrasts, with gently rolling hills and wooded valleys gradually giving way to dramatic rocky outcrops on high peaks.

We received an email from one of our readers, Cheryl Jessop asking if Semana Santa would still go ahead. We replied "As far as we know the Feria is still planned to go ahead.

We had received several similar emails of the previous week so set up a Coronavirus page to advise tourists of the normality in Andalucia. Things changed very fast over the next few days

Some visitors to Benalmadena want to do nothing but kick back, soak up the sun and forget the pressures of everyday life. And who can blame them? But if you're after animal adventures, high-octane sporting experiences, or some fascinating history and culture, you've come to the right place.

Ideal for families with young children who want a gentler up-close-with-nature experience, the Butterfly Park has over 1500 of the colourful little winged insects. The park is inside a Thai temple-style building; the blue tiles were actually made in Thailand.

Benalmádena's Sea Life Centre is a walk-through underwater park in Benalmadena on the Costa del Sol, which takes you on an  stroll along the seabed in a glass tunnel. You pass aquatic species from the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans and the Red Sea. It is an interesting and entertaining voyage of discovery for the whole family.

Playa el Cable (Cable Beach) takes its name from the overhead cable "El Cable Teleferico" runway that transported buckets of iron ore down from the Peñoncillo mine on the Sierra Blanca to ships moored offshore. If you look out to the sea you can't miss seeing the large anchor end tower of the line.

Selwo is a fascinating adventure in contact with nature. The park covers 100 hectares and is home to more than 2,000 animals from the five continents. The animals live in liberty, recreating their natural habitat - you can see lions, rhinos and giraffes; gnus, cheetahs, red pandas, meekats, and the endangered Iberian lynx; also birds such as hornbill, ibis, stork and crane. Visitors are taken on a four-hour tour, on foot and in four-wheel drive trucks.

Selwo Marina offers a new concept in family entertainment, bringing together sea life and the Amazon in an unusual but happy combination. The Marina is a complement to Selwo Adventure wildlife park in Estepona.
