"New documents about the history of Alcala La Real" Ricardo San Martin, a researcher and former teacher has published the latest issue. It published the first part in 2016, which was followed by the second issue. San Martin highlighted this in his conversation with ITAL. He has been working on the publication for over four years, and has had access to many archives and collections.
He explained that he had come across many documents but that, because of the current pandemic, I was able to consult some information about the locality and the actions or measures that are then taken. Real documents, such as lawsuits and privileges, are also notable. He acknowledged that Alcala la Real was a city with many privileges. It has been fascinating to find out what these privileges were throughout history, beyond the privilege of wine.
This new volume contains 100 documents taken from the local archive, and nearly 100 others from other sources. He explained how he arrived in the town with an objective to make a difference and that he believes he has achieved it. The book will not be officially presented, but is available in local bookstores.
Ricardo San Martin has many goals and projects. He told IDEAL that he is currently working on two books, one about stories, and one about research.
