Lost Dog –

My Spanish friend has lost his beloved little West Highland terrier mix dog.       He went missing about one week ago near the Budhist retreat in Trapiche near Velez Malaga and hasn’t been seen since. His name is Zorrini and he is microchipped. If anyone has any information on him or has seen him roaming around please contact us either by email or mobile 642589382.


Boating around Torrox Costa     I have been coming to Torrox regularly for 12 years or so and have always been surprised by how little boating and sailing activity there is in the area.  I know of the boatyard on Playa El Penoncillo but even that doesn’t seem to have much activity.  There are kite-boarders and occasional wind-surfers at Playa El Playazo and on the beach near El Morche but little more.               I am retiring and hoping to spend more time in the area later in the year.  I have done some dinghy sailing before and would like to take it, or some other boating, up again.  Does anybody know of any reason for the lack of activity on this part of the coast have any advice on taking it up?                                                                                 Please contact: andy.wilson1908 @ gmail.com

What’s on-The Torrox Spanish History Group

This is a new group which I  set up in October 2017 in an advert placed in The Digame which led to an tremendous response and we have since had four very successful meetings as well as days out.  It has been set up to encourage, to motivate and stimulate members to read and enjoy Spanish History.                       It is a place where like minded people share their research, give interesting talks, sharing ideas and have days out visiting the abundance of historical sites in the area.    The talks are on particular periods and areas of interest or areas of history of members choosing and by studying history we hope we will begin to understand the past.       Spanish History is exceptional in that it has been occupied by non European, non-Christian Islamic rulers since the 8th century. The Christian reconquest was a long process ending only in 1492 when the last Moorish kingdom of Granada fell. But the Arab occupation of Spain has left an abiding legacy especially in Andalucia.      There have been the Phoenicians who came here seeking its iron and tin and who were expert sailors, the Carthaginians and we all know who Hannibal considered to be one of the great military commanders in history, the Romans, the Visigoths and the the Arabs. Spain’s history is the most diverse in the whole of Europe.     We meet every first Tuesday of the month.      If you would like to join or know more about this group please contact me on patricianerja@homail.com
