Torrox Spanish History Group: The Torrox Spanish History Group enjoyed a very interesting and enjoyable visit to the Glass Museum on the 17th of June. As ever the guide was excellent. We then all went for tapas in the Plaza de la Merced.
The Torrox Spanish History Group is held on every first Tuesday of the month. Our next meeting will be on the 3rd of July. There will be a break in August because of the heat and also because many members return to their country of Origin for the summer months. So after July our next meeting will be on the 4th September 2018.
We meet at the El Parquesol restaurant in El Morche at 11am. If you would like to join us them please email me on patricianerja @ hotmail. com. Please close gaps.
Our talk for July will be on the Romans. These talks are part of a series of talks on the Romans and cover the whole period when the Romans were in Iberia. The first talk on the Romans given in May covered the years 236 BC to 213 BC and included the war with the Carthaginians up to the relief by the Romans of Saguntum. In June I gave a talk on the Middle East before Islam and on the Life of Muhammad. This was in order to set the scene for my forth coming talks on the Arabs in Iberia.

Holiday rental – Canillas de Albaida – a real retreat: Perfect for those who experience electrosensitivity, or any nervous system dysregulation, internet and TV have been deliberately kept out. So has smoking. Casa Laberinto is two original stone Andaluz houses, creatively restored, built into the side of the living mountain in a traditional Spanish pueblo blanco. The thick stone walls mean you are not subject to any wifi – really a rare find these days. On the edge of two national parks, this is a space where you can unplug from busyness, and reconnect with nature, yourself and each other. Gardens, roof terraces and patios, including a Moorish stone tower preserved as a ceremonial fire space, weave amongst the interior spaces with the mountain breezes. Sleeps up to 7. Non-smokers only. Great for families or couples travelling together. Available year round. Well-behaved pets considered. Bodywork sessions such as aromatherapy massage, hot and cold stone sessions and more can be arranged during your stay. Price from EUR 15 per person per night, (dependent on number of guests, length of stay and season). Bookings from 2 people or more.
