THIRTY members of Javea U3A’s Spanish Culture and Cuisine Group enjoyed a day-trip to L’Olleria for a triple treat of history and modern craftsmanship.

Led by group leaders Angela Chantry and Tony Dearie, the party visited the historic buildings of 18th century Capuchin Monastery and the former palace of Casa Santonia.

In contrast, the group also toured a modern glass factory that uses both new and recycled materials.

The little town of L’Olleria, located inland from Gandia, is famous for its glass manufacturing activity, especially blown glass.

Apart from the culture, the cuisine was provided by Restaurante Casa Manola in L’Olleria, where guests took a well-earned rest and enjoyed a welcome lunch of traditional Spanish fare.
