Book – Paulo, el magistrado de Salduba

Marbella Town Hall, in its constant effort to promote the knowledge of the history and value of archaeological sites of the city, has recently published a book titled “Paulo, el magistrado de Salduba” which talks about the history of the region.

The presentation of the book by the city council was a part of the programme of activities commemorating the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Agricultural Colony of San Pedro (Fundacion de la Colonia Agricola de San Pedro).

The book written by Jose Antonio Castillo is a reflection about the past of the region, in this case, from the point of view of a family that lived in the sixth and seventh centuries.

Talking about the author, Jose Antonio Castillo is a geographer and a teacher who has authored several books on Serrania de Ronda, and has also written books on Andalusian gastronomy.

As explained by the author, this new book is a multidisciplinary novel which talks about the historic environment, archaeology and geography, while the plot revolves around the life of Paulo and his sons with a succession of human values. Here readers can identify archaeological remains attest to the origin of the current Marbella and San Pedro.

Out of the 2000 copies published, about 1,300 are already sent to different municipal libraries and schools. In addition, this book will also be available at the Book Fair of San Pedro, which kicks off this Friday, the 25th and runs until July 11.
