A group of fifty Mojácar ladies recently enjoyed a weekend trip to Cordoba, accompanied by organiser and local Councillor for Women, Raquel Belmonte and Ana Garcia, the Education Councillor.

It has become traditional over recent years to make these eagerly anticipated breaks designed to celebrate International Women’s Day, with a chance to take a break from the daily routine and enjoy each other’s company on a well organised excursion.

Good weather in Córdoba ensured wonderful guided visits to the city’s most famous places including the; Puente Romano, Torre de Calahorra, Calleja de las Flores y Pañuelo, Plaza del Potro and Corredera without missing the famous Mezquita, the Barrio de la Judería and the Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos. There are so many emblematic sites that this beautiful World Heritage city has to offer, all places where you can admire many splendid examples of the different civilizations that have passed through its walls over the centuries.

Of course, the gastronomy also occupied an important place on this visit and every opportunity was taken to sample typical local dishes.  The tight schedule organised by the Women’s Department was topped off with a night at the Góngora Theatre to see the play Cyrano de Bergerac, boasting a well-known cast of actors with José Luis Gil taking up the lead role.

Like every other trip to date, the whole jaunt was a great all round experience in which the women, aged from 15 to over 70, had a great time together. Thoughts are already on plans for next year, with Seville the most likely destination for 2019.
