Virtual Monthly Meeting 30 June 2021

Valencia – Past and Present by Peter Atkinson

What a fantastic presentation we had from Peter Atkinson today on our local capital city Valencia. We heard about the numerous times the city was destroyed by advancing and retreating armies and of the damage caused by flooding of the River Turia.

Through the ages the city has acquired many architectural styles including some very futuristic buildings built during the last 20 years. The city has also produced some famous sculptors, writers and artists and was clearly an inspiration to them as evidenced by their work, of which we saw many examples shown to us by Peter.

We had 49 members at the meeting, held on Zoom, with every single one of us expressing great appreciation to Peter for an interesting and informative talk delivered in an entertaining way.
