Snowfall hits Malaga mountains during the height of spring

  • La Concha mountain in Marbella and peaks in the Sierras de las Nieves and in the Axarquía received the unseasonal weather on Saturday

It may be the middle of spring but many of the higher peaks across Malaga province were covered in snow early on Saturday morning.

On Marbella’s iconic La Concha mountain, at just 1,215 metres, snow was able to settle, creating a particularly picturesque image for those enjoying the coast.

Land above 1,500 metres in the Almijara and Alhama mountain ranges were also covered in a white blanket while snow at La Maroma (2,068m), in the Sierra de la Tejeda, could be seen from the city of Malaga.
