The U3A Axarquia

Where We Are From



This compilation presents the work of eleven writers living in the Axarquia region of Andalucia: one Spaniard, one Canadian, eight British and one French/American. If you enjoy sauntering down memory lane in another´s shoes, you will want to read these reminiscences that provide genuinely moving and profound glimpses into their childhood realities.

Some writers offer a gentle stroll where the reader encounters the places and people who helped to shape their lives. Others provide a view of life-altering flashbacks emotional and challenging. All are different and present empowering reflections, movingly written and illustrated with heartwarming images of lives that began in the 20th century.


The U3A Axarquia is based on the U3A (University of the Third Age) in the UK. Our aim is to provide an opportunity for people, who may be semi-retired, to enjoy stimulating activities to enhance their knowledge and skills. We are a sociable association run by the members for the members and organized into self-help groups where like-minded individuals gather in various venues to pursue stimulating, recreational, and thought-provoking activities that are fun. No qualifications are needed nor any gained.
