Members of AMUX and their friends are invited to our second summer supper with an historical theme. This year is dedicated to the ‘Al-Andalus’ period.
Bring a dish of food to share inspired by the andalusi period: Cous-cous, dates, olives, lamb, chicken, a selection of vegetables...
Don’t forget to bring plastic plates, cutlery and glasses in your picnic basket, and your own choice of drink.
Come dressed in ‘Al-Andalus’ style
Please make your reservations by Wednesday 25 June
to allow us to order sufficient tables and chairs.
Send an email with the names of you and your guests to firstname.lastname@example.org
Donation : 3 euros to cover the cost of sound equipment, chairs and tables
The night promises to be very entertaining. As well as learning a little more about our history, there will be music, candles and good company. Bring a CD to share with us, a musical instrument if you have one and know how to play it – to make it more festive. We look forward to seeing you!
Be aware that you take part in AMUX activities at your own risk.

The Islamic World in Xàbia and the Marina Alta
A talk by
In the auditorium of the Museum of Xàbia
The talk will be in castellano with English summaries
The dilemma of what to wear and what to eat at the ‘sopar Al-Àndalus’ of the AMUX has prompted Josep Castelló to offer us a brief history of the visible traces left by the muslims on our country, from their arrival in the Peninsula in 714 until the Christian conquest of Dénia in 1244. He will take us on a trip through the different stages of andalusi government, from that of the Emirate and Califat, the important period of the taifa of Dénia and the almorovid and almohad periods. He will also talk about the types of settlement, the cultural material found in archaeological excavations, the crops they introduced and the society and customs of the andalus population.
