Torrox Spanish History Group: The Torrox Spanish History Group had a very successful first year with talks which were wide ranging, from the Palaeolithic era; the Jews in Spain and Christoper Columbus as well as the Romans in Spain and we have more to look forward to in 2019!
Our first talk of the year was held on the 5th February. Our speaker was Helen Vernon who gave a talk on the “The History of Spices in Spain” Helen has a degree in History; a certificate in Egyptology and is currently studying for a diploma in Egyptology.
Our talk in March will be on the “History of Malaga Wine” by Jane (Cranmer) whose interests are in the production of wine and wine tasting. A trip to a vineyard will be arranged at a later date to be able to see how wine is produced and also sample some of the wine that Jane will be talking about!
Our talk in April will be on Queen Isobella of Spain and in May Joan Fallon the well known Scottish author will be giving another one of her excellent talks.
In April the group are going by coach to Italica and we will also be visiting the Monasterio of San Isodoro del Campo which lies 1.5 kilometres from Italica. There are more coach trips planned throughout the year.
Also we are fortunate enough to have an experienced lecturer among our members and we will be having our second workshop on Monday for people who wish to know or pick up a few tips on how to present a lecture.
The Torrox Spanish History Group meets every first Tuesday of the month at El Parquesol in El Morche at 11am.

We highly recommend Archgrove Services (Van Transport). Steve and Gail are totally professional – reliable – honest – trustworthy and punctual. They picked up our belongings for us in England, brought them over to Southern Spain, stored them until we had moved into our house in Torrox Pueblo, and then delivered them to us (up two steep flights of steps) exactly when we were ready for them. They kept us completely informed during the whole process of collection and delivery, we don’t know what we would have done without them. If you need anything delivered to the UK from Southern Spain, or picked up in the UK and delivered here, then look no further, you will not be disappointed.
Thank You Steve and Gail, we really appreciated your help!
