The A-7204 between Venta Baja and Colmenar will be closed to traffic between 07:00 and 22:00 on Monday December 10th as work is being carried out to repair damage caused by recent landslides. The work will be at km 10.700 between Periana and Mondrón and traffic will be diverted via the A-356 and A-402.

Málaga Provincial Council is funding a number of renovation projects in the town of Periana with the funds coming from the Plan de Concertación 2010 and 2011.
Periana has become the latest municipality to inaugurate a new football field, a project which cost €1,185,241.37 and was financed by the regional, provincial and municipal authorities.
The old Town Hall in Periana has been transformed into the Cultural Centre Generación del 27, with the Deputy Cultural Minister Dolores Fernández attending the official inauguration.
The association ‘La Alegría de Cuidar’ (The Joy of Caring) in Periana, a group of thirty women and three men who spent much of their lives caring for others, are hoping to raise funds through the sale of a calendar.
Improvements to calle Alta Axarquía in Periana will necessitate the diverting of traffic in the centre of the town until the works are completed.

Next Sunday in Periana is the eleventh Día del Aceite Verdial, a gastronomic event expected to attract over 11,000 visitors.
