Red Eléctrica de España and the Alcalá de Guadaíra (Seville) Town Hall have signed a collaboration agreement to create a cultural and environmental tour along the shore of the Guadaíra River, the Dragon Bridge and the castle, with stops at several points where visitors will be able to delve into the natural heritage of Alcalá. In addition, there will be a multimedia night show that will take place in the city’s old Arab fortress that will recreate its mythological origin. Red Eléctrica will allocate 125,000 euros to this project.

This initiative forms part of Red Eléctrica's sustainability activities, which include measures to provide support to towns where the company has an infrastructure. In this case, it features the 220 kilovolt (kV) Alcores-Santa Elvira line, and the expansion of the 220 kV Alcores electricity transmission substation.

The Mayor, Ana Isabel Jiménez, has affirmed that they are attempting to create a tourism product that makes Alcalá and its two most powerful icons—the castle and the Guadaíra River—into touristic references in the metropolitan area. For its part, Red Eléctrica’s Director of the Chairman’s Office and Institutional Relations, Beatriz de Munck, has explained that the company is operating in this same geographical area, and accordingly, the company not only always factors in the integration of its installations into the surroundings with the maximum respect for the environment, but it also contributes to sustainable development from the cultural, economic and social points of view.
