Spanish Vinalopó River, Pinoso district

Sponsored by

Spain, Alicante

The Vinalopó River, which is actually more a stream, is flowing through the Alicante province, Spain. It flows from north to south and to the recent times was discharging into the Mediterranean at Salinas de Santa Pola.

But due to the water over extraction and the droughts that the zone suffers, in the lower part of its course the river has a diminished flow and fades out into a series of small irrigation channels.
