Yesterday's inaugural ceremony for the 11th edition of the Instituto de Estudios Campogibraltareños (IECG) , held over this weekend at the Rena Sofía Cultural Centre in Estación, included a tribute to the significant figure of Tito M. Benady (left in photo, with Alejandro Mogollo), as well as to that of José Regueira, the Official Chronicler of Jimena.
