The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, announced on Saturday that from Monday 8 June, when the region moves into Phase Three of lockdown easing, travel will be permitted between Andalusian provinces.

The decision, which in Phase Three is in the hands of the regional authorities, has the approval of the central government and the committee of experts avising on Covid-19.

"From 8 June people can travel throughout the territory of Andalucía. We deserve to see the sun rise in Almeria and the sun set in Huelva, to stroll around the Alhambra...," said Moreno on Saturday.

At the same time, however, he asked the people of Andalucía to exercise "caution" and to go "step by step" in this last phase of lockdown easing because, "We have broken coronavirus, but we haven't eliminated it."

The region of Andalucía is formed by eight provinces: Almeria, Cadiz, Cordoba, Granada, Huelva, Jaén, Malaga and Seville.
