Sculpted by sand, water and wind over thousands of years, Las Gredas de Bolnuevo, the sandstone erosions of Bolnuevo, have long been a popular attraction for both tourists and locals alike, however, the familiar landmark we all know and love is now set to be fenced off from the public.

Plans to build a Paramount theme park in Alhama de Murcia have effectively been cancelled following a decision by the High Court of Justice of the region of Murcia.

Environmental organisation Ecologistas en Acción, who have fought against the proposal since 2011, denounced the theme park on the grounds that it would have “invaded” 21% of the land belonging to Sierra de Carrascoy and El Valle Regional Park, and demanded the project be officially scrapped.
