The Mayor of Salobreña is coming under increasing criticism for awarding herself a 14,000 pay rise when many fear for their jobs.
Another consequence of the prolonged rainfall on Friday were the boulders that had been dislodged from the cliff face below the castle.
Mª Eugenia Rufino Morales, 45 years of age, has been sworn in as Salobreña first female mayor to be voted in to the office.
The Mayor of Salobreña, Gonzalo Fernández Pulido, said that he won’t be running for re-election in the coming municipal elections – his place will be taken by Sra. M.E. Rufino.
