The birth of Los Gallardos

In 1924 a small village called Los Gallardos broke away from its mountain neighbour of Bedar and formed an independent new village in Almeria, southern Spain.
This is the story of these first steps of an independent and proud village that was only founded 50 years before independence.
Here I investigate how independence came about, the key first steps of the new village Council, important figures in this transformation, and the first major public works that the village of Los Gallardos was to take.
See how electricity first came to the village, the history of the Alfaix public spas, the construction of the Church, and how villagers clubbed together to ensure access to health and education for all.
