What’s On Excursion

to The Rum Factory & Museum at Motril and Afternoon in Salobrena

The Colmenar Social Club are organizing a Coach Trip on Wednesday the 23rd August to the Rum Factory and Museum of Sugar Cane at Motril, followed by a free afternoon in Salobreña.

The Trip will include a Guided Tour of the Montero Winery / Rum factory  where they will share with us the history of sugar cane and the process and traditional method of extracting of Rum (including tasting).  You will also have the opportunity to visit the nearby Museum of Sugar Cane.

We will then move on for lunch (sadly not included in the price) to Salobreña.   The Historic Old Town of Salobreña is particularly interesting with its 10th Century Castle and  charming winding lanes and gorgeous views.  Normally very difficult to park in August, so take advantage of this trip.

Cost of this trip:  €22.50 for Non-Members €20.50 for Members.

Pickups from Rio Gordo; 8.45am, Puente don Manuel; 9.00am and El Cruz, Trapiche at 9.15am.
