Visita al Castillo de Luna en Rota celebrando cumpleaños/Visit to the Castillo de Luna in Rota in order to celebrate some birthdays


El pasado mes de diciembre las “Sherry Girls”, así nos llamamos el grupo que trabajamos en las visitas y reuniones de los Sherry Explorers y catas de Discover Sherry, fuimos a Rota a celebrar el cumpleaños de Nieves e Inmaculada.  Nuestra amiga y Sherry Explorer Pilar Ruiz Rodríguez-Rubio nos organizo una visita al  Castillo de Luna.   Teresa Ruiz de Lacanal fue nuestra guía y nos contó entre otras muchas cosas super interesantes que el Castillo data del siglo XIII y se construyó sobre una edificación fortificado musulmán o ribat del siglo XI.  Tiene planta rectangular y cinco torreones almenados.  Ha  albergado un Hospital y Colegio, y actualmente es la sede del Ayuntamiento de Rota y de su Patronato de Turismo.  Esta perfectamente conservado y merece la pena visitarlo.   Después fuimos a comer a El Tragaluz, también os lo recomendamos, estaba todo exquisito.  ¡Muchas gracias, Pilar y Teresa!

Last December, the  “Sherry Girls,”( a name that we use to refer to the group that organizes the the Sherry Explorer visits and meetings as well as the Discover Sherry wine tastings) went to Rota to celebrate Nieves´and Inmaculada´s birthdays.  Our friend and fellow Sherry Explorer, Pilar Ruiz Rodríguez-Rubio, organized a visit for us at the Castillo de Luna.   Teresa Ruiz de Lacanal was our gracious guide and she informed us of many very interesting facts relating to the castle.  One of which is that it was built in the XIII century atop a Moorish fort, or ribat, which was built in the XI century.  It has a rectangular shape with five battlement towers.  It has been used as a hospital and a school.  At present it is utilized as Rota´s City Hall and as the location for the city´s Tourism Department.  It has been perfectly restored and it is well  worth a visit.   After our visit, we  had lunch at the El Tragaluz restaurant, which we also highly recommend.  Everything was excellent. Thank you very much,  Pilar and Teresa!
