Today’s Novena programme

Scan10001 This year’s Novena celebrations to honour Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles (Our Lady of the Angels, Patron Saint of Jimena) in Estación take place this weekend, from Thursday 3rd to Sunday 6th. Four days full of events, fun and ‘good rolls’ (that’s Spanglish, buen rollo in Spanish, better translated to good fun). While there are plenty of stand-out things to do and see, which we’ll be filling you in on, the full official programme is as follows. (Scroll down for today’s JimenaPulse news.)>

We are very interested in the clay pigeon shoot. Please can you tell us where La Viña shooting ground is. Thank you.

We answer a lot of questions such as yours (we will try to find out). This takes time and effort. Have you made a donation to JimenaPulse yet? Please do, as it will allow us to continue helping you.

The clay pigeon shoot at La Viña is at the end of the lane that comes out at the Repsol bombona storage & shop, near the entrance to Estación coming from Jimena, on the left. (Thanks for your donation, sheila c!)
