JAVEA U3A meetings have been held via Zoom during the pandemic and the last was watched by 50 members.
Former History group leader Peter Atkinson’s informative talk, illustrated with excellent pictures, traced the history of Valencia City, Spain’s third largest after Madrid and Barcelona.
Valencia suffered numerous attacks by advancing and retreating armies during its history as well as serious flooding in the late 1950s. This led to diverting the River Turia to avoid further destruction, with a dry valley created in its place.
Peter’s presentation featured Valencia’s contrasting architecture, from its beautiful old buildings to the ultra-modern City of Arts and Sciences, constructed during the last 20 years.
