The City Council recognises the deep involvement in local life of Javier López who was one of the co-founders of the San Javier International Festival of Theatre, Music and Dance 53 years ago.

The street map of San Javier pays tribute to Javier López, a local resident, who is recognised for the active role he played throughout his life in local society and his self-confessed passion for the town where he lived until his death at the age of 77, seven months ago.

The Mayor, José Miguel Luengo and his widow, Maribel Zapata were in charge of unveiling the plaque with his name, “Francisco Javier López Ros”, in the old Calle Marañón, a few metres from where Javier López lived all his life, first as a child and then forming his own family.

The event organised by the Town Hall was particularly moving with the presence of his four children, grandchildren and the rest of his family, friends, neighbours and colleagues from the San Javier theatre group, in which Javier López was an institution.
