"The Legua de Alguazas goes far" (19/07/2019)

The hamlet of El Paraje de Alguazas is one of those emblematic corners that still preserve in pure state the attractiveness of the traditional Murcian garden.

To this natural heritage we must add the monumental one because among the luxuriant vegetation is the imposing medieval fortress of the Bishop's Tower, the germ of the modern alguaceño settlement and clear hallmark of the history and idiosyncrasy of the local soul.

The scenic lookout formed by the confluence of the Segura and Mula rivers is another of the ingredients that play in favor of this beautiful corner of Murcia essence easily accessible by road and a stone's throw from large urban centers as they come to be the neighboring municipalities of Molina de Segura and Las Torres de Cotillas.

It is in this balanced collection of nature, tradition, art and splendor that finally where 18 years ago, thanks to the drive and selfless effort of a group of local residents, the National Championship of Launching of Legón de El Paraje de Alguazas emerged.

Great friend and noble person like Antonio Luis Fenollar, framed in the federative promoter entity of "The Legonazo", is one of the promoters of a unique event in Spain that year after year - in this month of July, specifically this Saturday, day 20 - brings together, with organizational, logistical and critical success, hundreds and hundreds of participants - men and women - and spectators.

The legón is one of those implements that have left the indelible stamp of a way of life, the huertano, in the alguaceño collective imaginary and to that spirit of keeping alive the memory of ancestors that struggled theirs in the lides of tame floods, sowings, terraces, caballones and tahúllas answers the primary objective of this national championship that receives, for its good development, the collaboration of numerous sponsors of the entire Region.

There are many groups, associations, institutions and individuals in general that over the last few years have been betting because the competent bodies, the Alguaceño City Council and the Ministry responsible for Tourism and Culture, proceed to process the declaration of the launching of the Legion of The Paraje as Fiestas of Regional Tourist Interest.

The event is extremely creditor to this distinction and the tenacity of its organizers to make known the meaning of this contest and the names of Alguazas and Murcia by the four cardinal points of the world well deserves to achieve that seal of autonomic quality.

From these lines I join that shared illusion go to more and, of course, that the leg of El Paraje de Alguazas, with its record of launching encrypted to date of today in something more than 39 meters away, comes edition after editing as far as possible in its projection.

So be it.
