Street in Torre del Mar to be named after German archaeologist

  • Hermanfrid Schubart carried out excavations in the area during the 1960s, bringing to light the presence of Phoenicians on the Iberian peninsular

Vélez-Málaga town hall unanimously voted to name a street in Torre del Mar after German archaeologist, Hermanfrid Schubart, last week.

Schubart carried out excavations in the area during the 1960s, bringing to light the presence of Phoenicians on the Iberian peninsular. Schubart was director of the German Institute of Archaeology in Madrid from 1981 until 1994.

He and his wife visited Torre del Mar last year to attend an archaeology exhibition at the old sugar cane factory.
