Most mountainous province

I am sure that I once read that Malaga province is the most mountainous in Spain based on the proportion of its area that is mountainous rather than the altitude of its mountains but I now can't find any reference to such a claim and internet searches aren't turning up anything even remotely similar...

Lunch between Granada and Nerja

Looking for recommendations/suggestions. I will be driving with a large group of visitors from Granada to Nerja and would like to stop somewhere special for lunch along the way. By special I don't mean upmarket but more special in the way of interesting, eg with a great view, unique location, quirky...

Re: Encargado de Obras en Ayuntamiento

Thanks. Yes that was the problem I had ie not knowing the level of responsibility. I think he was quoting job title but still no way of knowing exactly where that sits in the hierarchy. Thanks for your response though. ☺

Encargado de Obras en Ayuntamiento

Hi. Im talking to someone about doing some home renovations and he has told me that he was an "encargado de obras" with the ayuntamiento before he retired. I'm not familiar at all with the names of construction industry jobs here in Spain, nor to be honest with the industry hierarchy in th...

Re: Not yet started to learn Spanish but want to ?

What a shame chrissiehope. Actually most of the people on the group were just in Spain doing it as part of their vacation although there were a few of us living here full time. A really diverse, and interesting group actually. All still in touch from all over Spain and the world thanks to the wonder...

Re: Not yet started to learn Spanish but want to ?

too timid, too scared of being wrong, too reserved... wow some of these comments really reverberate with me. I love the academic learning, the grammar and the fascinating similarities to English etc but when it came to actually speaking the Spanish I know the nerves used to tongue-tie me. It's weird...

Three Cultures Tres Culturas Bus service Frigiliana to Nerja

Does anyone know until what time the buses will be running between Frigiliana and Nerja for the Three Cultures festival this weekend? Specifically what is the last bus that leaves Frigiliana in the wee hours?

Does anyone know anything about what is planned, who...

Looking for someone to teach Sevillana in Nerja

Hi. I'm looking for someone who can teach me to dance Sevillana. I started a course but the teacher stopped it halfway through, fair enough as it was the middle of last summer which was too hot really to do anything, and never got around to re-starting it. There is a course in the community centre h...

Re: Need a dress for the Feria

Thanks to all for your suggestions and leads. Peteroldracer I tend to agree with you and feel a certain unease about the idea of foreigners in flamenca dress. I too feel that it can be a bit like fancy-dressing. I think I particularly feel uncomfortable as I come from an ethnic background where nati...

Need a dress for the Feria

I have been told that there is a 'discount' dress and/or fabric shop for 'feria' dresses in Málaga somewhere on the way out toward the airport, possibly in or near a Poligono industrial estate. I got the idea it was a bit of a 'category buster', maybe warehouse style but this may be completely incor...

Re: Urgently need bank documents translated

Thanks for the suggestion costakid but there is no Aussie embassy in Malaga. I will check the Madrid website but normally they don't get involved in anything to do with us dealing with the host country government's processes. :crazy:

Urgently need bank documents translated

Hi all. I urgently need to have some Australian bank documents translated into Spanish for my visa renewal. Does anyone know of a company, ideally in Nerja, that could provide this service. Thanks.
