Information Request – Local Band

Tejeda Band plz

I’m Bill, Lancashire and stay in Nerja whenever possible with my wife Ann. We love walking in the area, visiting the villages, and enjoy getting further afield by bus from Nerja bus station.

We also enjoy taking dogs from the Tail Torrox rescue shelter for walks up the river to the pueblo two or three times a week.

During a recent 4-week visit we saw a band playing at a fiesta on the road down from Torrox Pueblo to Torrox Costa. I think the date was 11th June 2016 and I think the band was called TEJEDAS – I thought the band was great and would like to see them again on our next visit, if possible. We will be back in Nerja for 4 weeks from 10th January 2017. Do you think any of your readers may have any information about this band regarding gig dates,etc?

Looking forward to January and being back in our ‘2nd Home’!

All the best,

Bill.     billyhartley @ hotmail dot com

What’s on The Phoenix Club jolly to Zuheros, in Cordoba province on Friday 16th September.

Glaring bright light reflecting from chalk white walls in harmony with the Mediterranean blue sky is everybody image of a “pueblo blanco“. Zuheros is one of the best of these; “el pueblo mas bonito del mundo“.  It was originally settled by the Ibericos Pleno to protect an ancient roadway known as the Camino de los Metedores, the smugglers track. The Romans followed shortly afterwards, leaving behind them relics found in the Las Cuevas de los Murcielagos and elsewhere, some of which can be seen in the museum just opposite the castle.

The village became really established during the 10th century under the reign of the Muslims at which time the first castle was constructed, the last Moorish fortifications were completed in the 12th century. The territory around Zuheros was finally conquered by Fernando 3rd in 1241 and the castle was refortified in the 14th century. At this time then castle became an important element in the Christian defence of their territories against the last outpost of Muslim rule that came from Granada.

Opposite the castle is the church, the Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de los Remedios, the patron saint of the village. It was constructed in the sixteenth century but highly modified in 1696 with the bell tower finally added in 1795. Ideally situated on the fringe of the Sierra Subbetica Natural Park it is now becoming a popular base for walkers and painters, the Zuhayra (Tel: 957 694693) offers extremely good accommodation and is splendidly run by the Abalos family.

The village is also famed for its cheese factory Las Balanchares, locally bred goats from the Sierras provide the milk for this internationally known product. Cheese can be bought directly from the factory.

Four kms up the hill from Zuheros are Las Cuevas de las Murcielagos caves, well worth a visit for its formations and Neolithic interest.

The old railway which passes the village has been transformed into a Via Verde which serves as a walking and cycling route. Bikes can be hired from the hotels.

Price? €35includes coach entry to caves, castle and museum, lunch and drivers gratuity

Depart Algarrobo Lidl at 08.30
