Travel: Climbing to the peak of fitness: Max Wooldridge hit the hot, hard trail to mainland Spain's highest mountains. And lived to tell the tale . . .

I was three weeks too late for the romeria, the annual midnight trek to the top of Mulhacen, the highest peak in mainland Spain. During the night of 5 August each year, Andalucian pilgrims climb the 11,420ft mountain in honour of the Virgin of the Snows. These noctural ascents have at least one advantage - they avoid 'red runs', or long periods of walking in direct sunshine.

The Week Ahead: Unions plan wave of protest strikes

MUSIC / The whole world on six strings: Why would anyone take up the classical guitar? John Williams puts the case for an 'underprivileged' instrument to Nick Kimberley

IT WAS the conquistadores who introduced the guitar to the Americas. You could say that the conquered lands took their revenge by first passing the guitar from Latin America to North America, and then re-colonising the world. As we approach the end of the 20th century, the guitar can claim to have provided the century's musical voice, around the globe.

Dark light

MADRID (AP) - More than 30 people suffered eye injuries as they stared at the sun awaiting an appearance of the Virgin Mary predicted by an 18-year-old religious seer, Esteban Sanchez Casas. One thousand people went to Baza, north-east of Granada, on 11 June to await the miracle. Hospital officials said at least eight have irreversible retinal damage.

Travel: How to get the best out of Malaga: Adios to the stuffed donkeys: With the 'highway of death' bypassed, Malaga's older charm is being exposed. David Hewson goes exploring

Travel: The apres-ski is so Moorish: This week we traverse the Iberian Peninsula - skiing in Andorra, unveiling the new face of the Costa del Sol, reliving ferry journeys of the Seventies. Here, Stephen Wood experiences Andalucia - up and down - on the slopes of the Sierra Nevada and in the old city of Granada

Andalucia, in southern Spain, has its ups and downs like everywhere else, it's just that they are closer together. Malaga, the hub of Spain's lager-and-timeshare culture, is as low as you can go without drowning; but two hours up the road is the Alhambra, the magnificent 14th-century citadel of Granada's Moorish civilisation. A further 45 minutes away is the ski resort of the Sierra Nevada, one of the highest in Europe and currently cranking itself up to host the World Championships in 1995. On a clear day you can see Africa from the top of the pistes.

Luis Rosales Camacho, poet, critic and academic, born Granada 31 May 1910, died Madrid 24 October 1992.

Racing: Cecil pursues winning pattern

ANOTHER disastrous year for Henry Cecil: just 80 winners on the board, almost pounds 800,000 in prize-money, the provider of more winning rides for Pat Eddery, Steve Cauthen and Willie Ryan than any other trainer. But failure comes in many forms and the absence of the flag-raising ceremony at Warren Place that denotes victory at the highest level, a Group One race, means that 1992 must go down as as a disappointing year for the former champion trainer, writes John Cobb.
