Torrox Spanish History Group: The Torrox Spanish History group meets the first Tuesday of each month in El Parquesol restaurant El Morche at 11am. Next meeting is the 4th of September.
The group has been set up so that individuals who are interested in the History of Spain can get together in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The speakers are members of the group who read and then give talks on their chosen subject.
The aim of the group is to stimulate peoples interest and understanding of the people of Spain and to gain a knowledge and understanding of Spain’s History through reading and discussion; to develop an interest in the past; to learn about significant events in Spanish History; to visit places of historical interest; archaeological sites; museums and archives and to learn about the different religions and cultures which have played a part in Spanish History.
Our Speaker for September will continue with his talks on the Romans the second talk will be on pre-islam times and the rise of Islam, beginning with the life of Muhammad as well the early history of the caliphates and there journey to the Iberian Peninsular.
We will also be discussing our trip in October to the Medina Azahara (the shinning city) which lies just outside of Cordoba. The Medina Azahara is the ruins of a vast fortified Moorish medieval palace built by Abd-ar-Rahman III (912–961) c936 the first Umayyad Caliph of Cordoba. The Medina is located just west of the city of Cordoba. It was a medieval Moorish town and the de facto capital of Al Andalus. The city included ceremonial reception halls, mosques, administrative and government offices, gardens, a mint, workshops, barracks, residences and baths.
