    are hotels closed in nerja?and if so for how long?are there restrictions on peoples movements

  2. Yes hotels and short-stay accommodation campsites etc, will all shut by Tuesday 24 March in the whole of Spain. Although in Nerja, this was requested last week. Movement is restricted. The government are really good at getting ones to stay indoors. ( There is a fine unless going outdoors is necessary. ) Good on them for acting so promptly and decisively, to possibly slow down the spreading of the virus. Excellent safety measures carried out very well.
