EVERY year the town of Mojacar awards entities or people who have contributed to the good of the municipality with their ideas, influence or projects, with a ‘Golden Indalo’. 

The Indalo (pictured above) is a symbol of Mojacar and Almeria and is said to bring good luck to those it is given to. The awards will be made on Thursday January 29 at the FITUR exhibition in Madrid

The award winners for this year have just been announced. They are Doctor Christiane Gohl, a famous German writer, who has lived in the Mojacar area for 10 years. She has written under various pseudonyms including Sara Lark, Ricarda Jordan and Elisabeth Rotenberg as well as in her own name.

Another Golden Indalo goes to Rafael Antonio Hernando Fraile. Fraile is a Spanish lawyer, a politician and currently acts as spokesman of the parliamentary Popular Party in the Congress of Deputies and as an MP for Almeria.
