Torrox Spanish History Group: The Torrox Spanish History Group enjoyed a very successful meeting with on Tuesday 3rd April with Joan Fullon the writer and author of over 10 books as well as books on Spanish History including “Daughters of Spain” giving a talk about the Spanish Civil War. Her presentation focused on one place, Malaga and on a specific time, February, 1937. There were nearly 70 people present and more people joined the group whose membership has exceeded all expectations since the group was first set up in November 2017. There are now have nearly 80 people in the group. However not everyone comes at once as many people travel backwards and forwards between their own countries and usually we have between 25 to 30 at each meeting, we are also lucky in that we have many different nationalities.

Our next meeting will be on the 1st May with talks on the Caliphate’s of Spain and the Romans. Our talk in June will be on the Habsburg’s. The group meets every first Tuesday of the month at El Parquesol restaurant in El Morche at 11am. If you would like to join the group then please email me at patricianerja at hotmail dot com.
