SAL Lobres Camino de Santa AnaThe Environmental Board for the Junta is working with the Salobreña Town Hall to bring back the old Lobres alameda that ran down the side of the river.

An alameda is a tree-lined lane comprising of popular trees, which are thirsty, fast growing trees whose straight, thin trunks were formerly used as scaffolding and roof supports in building work.

The area where these trees used to grow and will soon do so again is the Camino de Santa Ana running alongside Río Guadalfeo.

The projected plantation will start near the entrance to Lobres as far as a little before the Tajo de los Vados (the canyon road or Azud de Vélez).

The Councillor for Lobres, Ana Mingorance, said that not only will this recreate a feature of natural beauty but would also act as a barrier when the river is in full spate.
