SAN ROQUE Although it has been ready since mid December, it was felt that January 4th was a better date for the inauguration of San Roque's museum. Located on Calle San Felipe, it has been over five years in the making. At a recent press conference, Mayor Juan Carlos Ruiz Boix announced that the inauguration tomorrow will be in the presence of the President of the Junta de Andalucía, José Antonio Griñán. Amongst other things, Ruiz Boix said he would work towards bringing back to San Roque the numerous museum-quality pieces of art and architecture, the latter from the Roman era Carteia site, that over the years have found their way to a variety of exhibition spaces all over Spain. Some of these illustrate the very first human settlement on the Guadarranque river.
