VERA will mark the fifth centenary of the earthquake which destroyed the old Almerian town with a series of events tomorrow (Friday).
The day will begin with the planting of 150 trees by school children in the Rambla Park to mark each life lost in the earthquake, which hit on November 9 1518.
Evening events include a conference about the earthquake in the parish church, a theatre route with actors playing different characters from the time of the earthquake, along with dancing to Renaissance period music and storytelling.
At the end of the evening a video simulating the night of the earthquake will be projected onto the church façade before all the lights are turned out in the town’s central square and there is a minute’s silence in memory of the victims.
