Historical Walk, Benitachell, 20 September

Our very own History enthusiast and guru – Keith – organised an excellent historical walk around Benitachell on Friday, 20th September.
It proved to be a very comprehensive tour of about 5 kilometres in length and, as anyone who knows the geography of Benitachell will know, none of it was on the flat.  However, we managed to last the course and survive the hills and slopes of the town without having to call for medical assistance!

One of the many interesting features of the walk was seeing the ‘witches cave’ at Los Molinos…not quite what we were expecting.
It must have been the witches’ day off, though, as we saw no signs of “hubble, bubble, toil and trouble,”
nor any cauldrons boiling up the kind of fare mentioned in Shakespeare’s Macbeth :

“Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg, and howlet’s wing…”

Actually, with a bit of chorizo for flavour, that wouldn’t have been a bad Tapas menu!

Seriously, though, many thanks again to Keith for organising the event and we look forward to his next historical outing.
