Water is being rationed in half of Spain to save it for domestic use, as parts of the country suffer the worst drought for 60 years.
Weeks before the tourist season starts, swimming pools are empty, city fountains are turned off and golf courses ordered to reduce watering.
Some reservoirs in the south-east are more than three-quarters empty. With no fresh rain expected in the affected areas until the autumn, authorities have decided they must protect domestic supplies through the busy summer season.
