Ginés García Millán

Originally from the town of Puerto Lumbreras Murcia, Ginés García Millán spent much of his childhood and adolescence in the hotel run by his parents in his hometown, played as a goalkeeper in junior categories of Murcia before focusing on the interpretation, his real vocation. He moved to Madrid to learn at the School of Dramatic Arts. It did not take him much to stand out among his classmates, for that reason, once graduated, one of his teachers, offers him the possibility of debuting in  theater; This moment turned out to be a prologue to a brilliant theatrical career. He debuted on the big screen in 1996 with Tabarka, and although he shone in films like Mensaka, The Year of the Deluge, Steps or 23-F, he has reaped his greatest successes on television, a medium in which he debuted at the beginning of the 90s and who has seen him grow in series such as "All men are equal", "Marriage with Child", "Heirs", "Love in Troubled Times" or "Adolfo Suárez", among others.

Garcia Millan is one of my favorite actors because I've been watching him on TV since I was a child, and also because the way he plays his roles seems to me impressively good, to the point that makes you doubt if he is acting or not.

Maldita Nerea is a Spanish pop rock music group that was born in Murcia. In my opinion it is a good group.

The Maldita Nerea group is formed by Jorge Ruiz, Luis Gomez Rafa martin, Tato Latorre and Serginno Moreira. In 2003 they started giving small concerts in Murcia, and they continued with performances in Salamanca venues. There, their first concerts were very successful, but their true success began in 2007 with their song “The Secret of the Turtles”.

José Moñino Redondo, the Count of Floridablanca was a Spanish politician. He was born in Murcia, and he lived in the 18th century. In my opinion, he was a very important character in the Spanish history.

He started his studies in Murcia, and then he moved to Orihuela to continue. In 1748 he obtained the title of lawyer, and his contacts  with influential characters like the Duke of Alba facilitated his entry into the Council of Castilla.

In reward for some of his services (such as acting against the instigators of the Esquilache mutiny in Cuenca), the King Carlos III named him Count of Floridablanca in 1773.

He became part of “the generation of the politicians of Carlos III” who helped to modernize the Bourbon monarchy in various areas (social, economic, political), introducing a reformism inspired by The Enlightenment that at the time began to spread all over Europe.

He has made some of the best contributions in Spanish History so far. In my opinion it is incredible that from being a lawyer he became such an important person working for the government of a country.
