Visit to Montillar and Lucena Cordoba Province 18th May
Lucena is situated on the Lucena River, a minor tributary of the Genil, on an important crossroads at the very center of Andalusia. In early times Lucena was inhabited almost exclusively by Jews who had arrived together with its founders; hence it was called “Jews’ City”, a nickname also applied to Granada and Tarragona. The Jews of Lucena, who carried on extensive trade and industries, were, according to the 11th-century Moslem geographer, Mohamed al-Edrisi, richer than those of any other city. They enjoyed the same freedom as their correligionists in the large Muslim cities. Their Rabbi, who was elected by the entire community, was granted special privileges and acted as judge in the civil and criminal cases arising in the community. The Jews lived peaceably until the Almoravides came into power.
Lucena was taken from the Moors in 1240 but it remained as frontier village for centuries. In fact, it was in the attempt to recapture it that King Boabdil of Granada was taken prisoner in 1483.
The parish church dates from the ending of the 15th century. Our Lady of Araceli is an image brought from Rome in the 16th century and is the patron of Lucena, canonically crowned in 1948.
The chief industries are the manufacture of furniture, industrial refrigerators, wine, bronze lamps and pottery, especially the large earthenware jars (tinajas) used in the past throughout Spain for the storage of oil and wine, some of which hold more than 300 gallons. Matches also used to be made there. There is considerable trade in agricultural produce.
Our visit includes Montillar – The olive oil of the district is abundant and good, and it is the peculiar flavour of the pale dry light wine of Montilla that gives its name to the sherry known as Amontillado. Montilla is the largest component of the Montilla-Moriles designated wine region. The large wineries Alvear and Gran Barquero are located in Montilla, which has an annualvendimia (wine-harvest) festival.

The emphasis is on plants and how they flourish in these very unique climatic conditions.

Long Term Rental Needed-
I’m moving to Spain and looking to settle in Nerja. I’d be interested to hear from anyone with a room, or rooms, to rent either in their own home, or who knows of somewhere reasonably priced (other than an hostal) where I could begin my Nerja days.
I’m a 50 year old writer/musician (acoustic singer/songwriter), and have wide-ranging skills in the field of health and wellbeing. I have studied yoga and meditation and also practice Qi Gong (Tai Chi).
I have trained in life coaching so it could be that someone requiring a bit of support/care might benefit from having me as a lodger. I am fluent in Spanish too. I have a current (and clean) drivers licence.
I’ve come to Spain for a change of lifestyle but already know Andalucia well, having lived in Seville and Alozaina (Malaga) for many winters. Ideally I’d like to find somewhere from the beginning of March…
I’m contactable at this email address: jonstein1@hotmail.com or by mobile phone: 0044 7549 139 504
Many thanks Jon

Cat Found – Help Please
We found a cat (we call him Leo) in the street over a week ago and we have had him in our flat since then. We took him to the Protectora in Málaga the same day but they are not accepting more animals! We had him at the vet and he has no chip and is not neutered yet. He was treated for internal and external parasites and had a blood test for feline lukemia and something else which were negative. He is a good natured cat (he let us wash him in the bath with no problem) and is very affectionate. He is quite social and likes to be with us. Unfortunately we already have 1 cat which has been quite vicious to him as we messed up the introduction (all this being new to us) As my partner and I are both unemployed we can’t afford to keep 2 cats in our small flat. We also think there may be further health issues as he has had diarrhea since we found him. We are following advice from the vet regarding this but can’t afford to do much more. We are getting a bit desperate about the situation as we will be away next Thursday for a number of days and while we have arrangements for our cat, we think ‘Leo’ needs more attention.
Can you help us in any way? Mairi mairi.summers@gmail.com

What’s on – Competa Worship Group
This year the Competa Worship Group is offering ‘How Then Shall We Live?’, an ecumenical 5 session Lent course open to everyone who would like to join us. Lent points to the coming of spring and invites us to slow down our lives so as to be able to take stock of ourselves. In this rapidly changing world often people find that time for spiritual reflection is squeezed out. Lent is a time when we can ‘breathe in’ – reflect on our lifestyle and draw spiritual nourishment from some key sacred resources.
The aim of the course is to explore and grapple with the Beatitudes – or beautiful attitudes – described by Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount. These eight radical sayings from Matthew’s Gospel contain both values for living and promises of blessing. They touch the whole of life. They speak to our relationships with those who are closest to us and also address the culture, values and society in which we live.
The group will be held in people’s homes near to Competa and will run weekly, starting on Tuesday 20th February at 10.30 and may be repeated on Thursday 22nd at 3.30, depending on numbers.
If you would like to join us, or seek more information, please contact Lyndsey (linsi@lnznwills.com tel 645115747) or Jean (jeanr97@gmail.com)
Competa Worship Group is an ecumenical group of practicing Christians who meet weekly in people’s homes near Competa. Everyone welcome.

She is a Dutch artist who lives in Frigiliana and will soon move to Cadiz. Kim creates spiritual paintings. She developed her own style in Mandalas, mixing acrylics with mediums. By practising Mala-meditations she translates energies into her Mandalas. She also works on commission base, she ‘tunes in’ to the energy of the room or the person, inspired by this input she creates a very personal‘Mandela-painting’. Dutch artist Linda Roffel has been fascinated by colour and shape as a means of expression for a long time. She uses that fascination to create sensual portraits of the backs of women. Using Acrylic paint and only a palette knife – she usually works with four pigments at a time: grey, white, brown, yellow and sometimes red. With these deceptively simple ingredients she creates structure, depth and transparency in her images. Three of her works will be shown in the gallery.Italian artist Daniele Vignati was born in Milano in Italy. Daniele creates abstract, colorful and bright images. “The artist gives shape to images which come from a reality unknown. The artist has the ability to make the invisible, visible.” Daniele exhibits her art in Italy and various other European countries. It is the first time she is exhibiting her paintings in Galeria Luz de la Vida. The art of Lieuwke Loth is on permanent show, as well as other paintings from various International Artists. Feel welcome to come around and enjoy the many Artworks in the gallery! http://www.galerialuzdelavida.com

Trip to the Bioparc in Fuengirola
The vist by the Phoenix Club is on the 23rd of March
Bioparc Fuengirola champions a new model of zoo based on respect for nature and the preservation of natural species, a model which has already established itself as a flagship for Europe. It represents is a different concept of zoo. A zoological park where animals live side-by-side, recreating their natural habitat and so fostering their development at all levels. Visitors are stepping inside a true documentary of the deepest tropical woodlands.
The habitats of Africa, Asia and Madagascar are recreated by the themed design of embankments, waterfalls, rocks, trunks and even realistic trees. The creation of the baobab tree, one of the largest artificial trees in the world, standing 25 metres high, set the park’s designers a real challenge. It has now become a landmark of the centre and of the town of Fuengirola itself.
Bioparc is home to such emblematic species as the Sumatra Tiger, featured on the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) Red List of Threatened Species, in the highest category of “Critically Endangered”. Only 250 specimens remain in the wild in their natural habitat, and the Bioparc has succeeded in breeding the species.
The centre also has exclusive species of such great biological importance as the Malayan False Gavial, bred here successfully for the first time in captivity, and the Blue Duiker, to be found nowhere else in Spain, along with the only group of breeding gorillas in Andalusia.
The centre has in a very short period established itself at the forefront of European zoos, and has as such won widespread recognition both in Spain and beyond.
It recently received an award acknowledging the marvellous reproduction of the enclosure known as “The Mangrove”, which includes a remarkable underwater view of this peculiar ecosystem, home to fish, birds and turtles in grave peril of extinction.
We will also visit Benalmadena Marina where you can have a late lunch. This is not included in the price.
