Thursday was a day of celebration in the south of Spain as institutions marked Día de Andalucía, the 39th anniversary since the region became an autonomous community, with a series of events.

In Seville, workers who joined the rescue effort for little Julen in Totalán last month were among several individuals recognised with Medals of Andalucía, while in Malaga regional folklore was celebrated with a series of musical performances in the Edgar Neville theatre (pictured).
