                                centuries was vulnerable to invaders, from the
                                Phoenicians and Carthaginians to the Romans
                                and the Visigoths. It was the arrival of the Arabic
                                Moors in the 8th century that left the most
                                lasting impressions on the land, for they stayed
                                on these shores for the next 500 years.

       warm welcome and personal service awaits
