About Jimena de la Frontera, the province of Cadiz and Spain as a whole, focused on this small village in the mountains


junio16y17-049.jpgWelcome to the English-language page about  the Campo de Gibraltar. This is where you will be able to find news about all six municipalities in the Campo: La Línea, San Roque, Jimena de la Frontera, Castellar de la Frontera, Algeciras and Tarifa. We also cover the Costa del Sol, Ceuta and Melilla, as well as relevant information on the Province of Cádiz and Spain as a whole – focused from the southernmost part of the country.

If you live here, have a holiday home or are just visiting, there is something here for you. Your contribution is a valued part of our purpose, though we reserve the right to edit or publish it.

Our aim is to keep English-speaking residents and non-residents abreast of what goes on here; to reinforce a sense of community and belonging to a place where we have chosen to live or spend our holidays; to create a bridge between the local community and the expats; to help with the language; and to have some fun with what we hope is a sense of humour.

copy-of-ab-europa-sur.jpgThe site is managed and written mostly by a long-time resident who goes under the name of Prospero, but whose real name is Alberto Bullrich. He speaks native Spanish although he and his mother tongue are English. His purpose in creating this site is to return a little of the much he has received from the people of Jimena over the thirty-plus years he has known the village. It is the least he can do.

blog_or_not1.jpgPlease note the words ‘nonprofit dilemma’ in the cartoon. While taking care of this site takes up a great deal of time and effort, it is essentially a nonprofit enterprise. However, we do charge our advertisers a very modest sum for their presence here, the idea being to cover at least some of the costs involved. We are very grateful to all of them, past, present and future, for their support.

And we’re very grateful to you, Dear Reader, for visiting us. Of course, if you’d like to donate a little something you can go to the PayPal icon on the sidebar and do your thing safely and securely. We will undoubtedly be even more grateful.
