This initiative, which is expected to exceed 300 participants, is being held in Chirivel.

This weekend, from the 19th to the 21st of May, the II Meeting of Speleology and Mountain ‘Espeleovélez’ will be held, an initiative that was created with the aim of promoting tourism in the region of Los Vélez through mountain sports and, at the same time, to disseminate caving as a science, as well as scientific exploration, through the rich heritage of the region.

Chirivel hosts the activities of the new edition which includes a wide range of proposals designed to meet the expectations of the participants and to demonstrate the potential of the region in everything related to the mountains. During this weekend there will be caving, climbing, hiking, conferences and concerts with local groups.

The Sports Deputy, José Antonio García said that “Los Vélez is launching this meeting which brings together science, culture, sport and other leisure and tourism that extol the tourist resources of the whole region and its suitability for these sports. It is a meeting that is serving to promote this region through mountain sports”.

In this sense, the delegate of Tourism, Culture and Sport, José Vélez, explained that this event brings together the three areas of the council to which it belongs because “it generates a tourist and cultural activity of enormous significance for the region and to publicize the heritage of the caves in the province, which not everyone knows, and also give the opportunity to get started in these sports disciplines.

Finally, on behalf of the Asociación Espeleológica Velezana, promoter of the event, its president, Bernardo Rodríguez Cerezuela, has described the programme of the second edition of ‘Espeleovélez’ and stressed that “sports activities are combined with conferences, where we will have the honour of having Professor José María Calaforra, who will tell us the story of the Geode of Pulpí, or David Palmada who is an internationally renowned climber”.
