Perimeter closure in Andalusia, how does it affect me?

Fortunately, the good weather has accompanied us over the last few weeks, making Malaga and the Costa del Sol an ideal and safe destination. There is a wide range of activities available, whether cultural, sporting or recreational. Visiting museums and monuments, trekking, cycling routes and enjoying the local cuisine in bars and restaurants, always within the municipality of residence, are some of the options available.

Outdoor sports centres may remain open, but not those that provide indoor sports.

The “curfew” hours have also been extended and will apply from 22:00 to 07:00.

As well as the provinces of Granada, Seville and Jaen. Andalusia is also in perimeter closure with respect to other communities.
