Ahead of municipal and European elections in 2019, today we look back at moments in history when the Autódromo de Terramar was the scene of rallies for some of the most high-profile figures in Spanish politics.

And while the local "Fiesta Mayor" brought together the public at the start of the summer, today we wanted to pay tribute to the city we call home.   Indeed, the city as we know it today has little to do with what
