Torrox Spanish History Group: The Torrox Spanish History Group enjoyed a day out on 10th April visiting the Monastery of St. Isidoro. The Monasterio de San Isidoro del Campo was founded by Alfonso Pérez de Guzmán and María Coronel Alonso in 1301. We spent several hours there and then went onto Italica where we had some lunch at one of the local restaurants before spending several hours walking around the city, afterwards we made our way to the Plaza Espana in Sevilla for a short visit. Italica was the birthplace of three Roman emperors – Trajan, Hadrian, and Theodosius and was one of the earliest Roman settlements in Spain, it was founded in 206 BC by Publius Cornelius Scipius to house soldiers who had been wounded in battle. The 25,000 seater amphitheatre, which was one of the largest in the Roman Empire, has partly survived. The central pit was used for animal cages, bears and wild boar, during gladiatorial combats.
Also five large houses of prosperous families have been excavated, some with well-preserved, colourful mosaics, including floors with exquisite design of birds, Neptune, and the planets.
-On May 14th The Torrox Spanish History Group are are fortunate enough to have the well known author Joan Fallon giving a talk on “The Golden Age of Moorish Spain. We normally meet every first Tuesday of the week but for May we will be meeting on the second Tuesday instead.
Joan will be bringing her books along for your to purchase as well as her latest one called the The Apothecary set in 11th century Malaga.
Our group meets at El Parquesol on the first Tuesday of the week at 11am (apart from May_

Follow-up to the plea for a cat trap: I want to extend my deepest thanks to Naythan for posting the plea for the cat trap so promptly.
A very professional trap was loaned to me by TAILS TORROX, and once set up, the Mother cat to the rescued kittens was promptly trapped. She is now being held in containment with the objective of taming her to the point where she will be trusting enough to handle so that she might be brought to the get clinic in La Caleta to be sterilized.
Unfortunately her kittens, who are now being hand raised and fed a cat milk formula which had been donated by a compassionate cat lover, will not be able to be reunited with their mother, as it looks to risky to their lives to do so. They are doing well though, and will continue to be reared by hand until weaned, at which time they will be put up for adoption.
A sincere Thank You to the Digamites who also came forward with the offer of a trap, and to those others concerned enough to reply to the post with good contact numbers of rescue groups in Torrox, Torre Del Mar and Competa. You know who you are.
Finally I want to thank my friend Helen of Sayalonga, who took time out of her day to drive me to Torrox to pick up the cage.
Compassion does exist.
