EXTRAORDINARY flash floods across Andalucia are threatening one of the region’s cultural cornerstones.
The 18km annual midnight pilgrimage through Albox, Almeria, to the monastery in Salient is in jeopardy.
Bulldozers are currently trying to clear up the mess after flash floods hit the area this morning and this afternoon, causing at least one death.
“It is the worst floods I’ve seen in a few years now,” expat councillor in Albox, Maura Hillen told the Olive Press.
“When it rains here, it comes down fast.
“There are teams currently trying to clear up so the pilgrimage can take place, but if there is any more rain then I imagine it will have to be cancelled, which would of course be a great shame.”
