"A fantastic holiday in Piso Blanco – the Barrio San Francisco, balcony and pool heightened our enjoyment of Ronda.  Was happiest watching the sunset from this balcony over the mountains."

Earthquakes hit Spain PDF
Thursday, 12 May 2011 09:00

The first I knew of this disaster was when I got a Facebook message this morning from a relative in the UK, asking if we were OK.

I’ve since done some research and discovered that the Spanish town of Lorca in Murcia province, some 380 kilometres from here, suffered several low-level tremors yesterday, culminating in a quake at 6.47 pm measuring 5.1 on the Richter scale.

At least 10 people are dead and dozens injured.
