The first resident of Torrevieja


Go to the Page

Nils Gäbel was the first resident of Torrevieja.
In 1963 he arrived in Torrevieja Harbour with his family.
They had sailed from Sweden and immediately fell in love with the harbour town and  decided to settle here.
The Town Hall of Torrevieja in appreciation of his tireless work in establishing the first Scandinavian community on the Costa Blanca dedicates this monument to Nils and his family and acknowledges the contribution of Atlas International in donating this tribute.
Torrevieja September 2003.

Mayor of Torrevieja
