The story of our adventure in Spain

In October 2002 we purchased a holiday flat in Guardamar on Spain's Costa Blanca - not far from Alicante and Torrevieja and we try to spend a good part of the year in Spain.

This blog hopefully will contain our thoughts and impressions of Spain - the good and the bad and lots and lots of photographs of not only Guardamar but the rest of Spain as we eventually get to explore it.

Torrevieja - Habaneras

This monument is dedicated to the Habaneras and is found on the sea front in Torrevieja

The Habaneras style of singing was brought back to Torrevieja by the early sailors on their return from Cuba .

A distinctive style - Torrevieja is now famed for the Habaneras music festival.

How interesting, I've never seen anything like this before. A really good choice. ¿Hablas español?;)
Thanks for visiting mine.
