The Torrox Spanish History Group: Peter Alfondoulis gave a talk on the battle between the Arabs and the Catholics which took place on the 25th August, 1330. with Sir James Douglas (also known as Good Sir James and the Black Douglas) getting caught up in the battle carrying the heart of Robert the Bruce to the Holy Lands.
As a result of Peter (Alfondoulis) a coach trip has been organised on the 3rd of December to Teba where the battle took place and where there is a memorial to Sir James Douglas and Robert the Bruce.
As we make our way there we will also be visiting El Torcal known for its unusual landforms, and regarded as one of the most impressive karst landscapes in Europe. We will also be visiting the Famous Dolmens in Antequera which have been declared a World Heritage Site. The Neolithic Dolmen of Menga represents one of the most important structures of the Megalithic architecture.
The Torrox Spanish History Group meets every first Tuesday of the month at El Parquesol in El Morche at 11am. If you would like to join us then please email Patricia/Torrox at

Mountaineering for beginners in Las Alpujarras: “The Poqueira valley is the perfect place to get started in medium- and high-mountain [climbing],” says Jesús Espinoso, founder of the company Nevadensis, which manages the information center at the Sierra Nevada National Park in Pampaneira, and has been guiding groups through the mountain range for 30 years. Pampaneira’s closeness to the Mediterranean Sea calms the weather conditions during a large part of the year. From the Poqueira refuge, which is 2,500 meters above sea level and open year-round, visitors can explore six routes – the circular route that passes by several lagoons, two routes which follow different tracks to the Alcazaba peak (3,364 meters above sea level); one that leads to Veleta peak (3,396 meters) and two others to Mulhacén, although there are more ways to reach the summit. Treks can be tailored to your experience and physical abilities so don’t be shy, let’s discuss the possibilities.

Items For Sale / Wanted / Rent

Click on pics to enlarge

For Sale: BMW 320i (cabriolet). Regrettably, I’m selling my cherished Spanish registered, full Spanish spec 1999 BMW 320i cabriolet, as it’s been gathering dust for the last year. Only 96,000 km, long ITV. A fantastic car to drive, and in very good condition.
Street price is around €4,000, but sadly the roof need attention. The electric roof has stopped working, hence the low asking price. I’m told the problem is a stripped cog in the roof motor. Someone with the ability, or who knows a decent mechanic can pick one up off eBay for around £70. Price €2,500 or very near offer.
