    "The intervention in the Castle Matrera has been unfortunate '
    Archaeologist Alejandro Pérez, member of the Papers History Association, regrets the "excessive" reconstruction of tower

    The intervention now highlights the "floating wall" that is embedded in the heightening of the tower. "If you look at the castle in old photographs, the coronation of the crenellated, who had shown up when the fortress was still in use in medieval times," he explains. However, "the new reading made tower is confusing."

    "They searched the finish had the castle tower Matrera at source"

    The architect Carlos Quevedo responds to criticism of its controversial restoration: "There Behind 5 years of work, a comprehensive project done with rigor, where everything has a why"

    The architect believes that the action is controversial. "The opinion is respectable, constructive criticism and enriching debate, but you can not judge a project as complex as this with a simple image," he stresses, because "after 5 years of work there." "It was a comprehensive project, done with rigor, and everything has a reason," he adds, ensuring that they have also received congratulations from architects, restorers and archaeologists


    Quevedo explains that "we have used the same material that the castle was built," not concrete, as some suspect, although it has been given a different finish because "we have sought the one who really had the tower at source".


    The construction "had lost massing and identity as landscape icon" and his performance, has tried to "consolidate and regain that volumetrics."

    Another tower located in the same province of Cadiz in Zahara a few km from Castle Matrera and with a much more firedigna reconstruction and in line with reality.

    The political class has not only created the newspeak, imbecility that has permeated the media and much of the population, with the repetition of the genre when our Spanish language is not necessary, if not now claim that the mark his paw become apparent in the history affecting archeology and national heritage, leaving politics forever mark. It is the style of the regions who dare to manipulate and change history and worse to invent, that has permeated other regions who dare to give a new look to something old, is a new concept but a new concept with political label.

    I've had something forgotten the thread of the cheese for different personal reasons, but I'm back, you can be satisfied. Actually this thread comes to me from a trip I made to Berlin and visiting KDW stores or something like that I think they were called in the cheese section, a large and large fridge had international cheeses for sale mostly from Italy and France and There were only two Spanish cheeses and this is not going to be like that, maybe it's due to ignorance, topics etc.

    The best organic cured cheese in the world is from Cadiz

    The cheese factory 'El Gazul' has been awarded in the III International Goat Cheese Contest

    The organic cured cheese Montes de Alcalá from the 'El Gazul' cheese factory has won the Gold Award at the III International Goat Cheese Contest, held this weekend in Talavera de la Reina as part of the CapraEspaña Caprino International Summit 2017 .


    This pioneering event in Spain, which is reaching a level and figures that place it among the best that is celebrated in Europe exclusively goat cheese, has also been awarded the Silver Prize for the cured cheese 'El Gazul'.


    Thus, this cheese factory located in Alcalá de los Gazules is once again recognized (after its first place in the Gourmet Awards) as the one that makes the best organic cheese among more than 150 different types of cheese from more than 70 dairies of all points from Spain, as well as representatives from other countries such as France, Ireland and Portugal.
