Sunday shopping: The Malaga city centre joins Benalmádena, Estepona, Fuengirola, Manilva, Marbella, Mijas, Nerja and Torremolinos in having permission for shops to trade on Sundays during the summer.
From now until 15 September, businesses in the old city centre, the port area and Cruz de Humilladero will open on Sundays and public holidays.
Big shopping centres such as El Corte Inglés, Larios Centro, Vialia, Málaga Plaza, Plaza Mayor, and La Rosaleda fall outside the area covered by the permission and will remain closed on Sundays.
A trade union representing Spanish workers at the Renfe railway company has called a strike for Monday July 15 after talks with bosses on pay and conditions broke down. The 24-hour strike is set to take place on one of the busiest days for the publicly-owned rail company. Passengers travelling to different parts of Spain for summer holidays could face disruption, delays and cancellations if the strike goes ahead. Renfe has yet to comment on the strike. The Development Ministry is expected to say which services will still run and which will be cancelled in the coming days.
