La Torre De Esteban Hambram
(our partner town)
La Torre de Esteban Hambrán is a Spanish village and municipality in
the province of Toledo. The town was founded by the Romans in 171
BC, but little is known about the Roman era of the village. After the
Reconquista, the area around the "Esteban Hambrán" tower became
populated. In the early 15th century, the land belonged to Pero López
de Ayala. The village was bought in 1436 by Álvaro de Luna. When
some years later John II of Castile confiscated the place, the village
became crown property.
TOLEDO
Toledo is a municipality located in central Spain, 70 km south of
Madrid. It is the capital of the province of Toledo. It is also the capital
of autonomous community of Castile-La Mancha. It was declared a
World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986 for its extensive cultural and
monumental heritage as one of the former capitals of the Spanish
Empire and place of coexistence of Christian, Jewish and Muslim
cultures, as well as the place where harsh religious persecutions were
held against the Jews.
SOME TYPICAL DISHES
These are the traditional tapas, a wide variety of appetizers.
The delicious paella, a rice dish combined with white fish,
shrimps, squids and clams. Rice can be mixed with fish and
meat (Mixed paella) or vegetables (Vegetarian paella). The
name "paella" comes from the name of the special pan used
for the cooking.
Cuchifritos: a fried lamb or goat meat along with olive oil,
garlic, vinegar, basil, rosemary, bay leaves, and spearmint.
