The first resident of Torrevieja

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.

I 1963 la han til i Torrevieja havn sammen med sin familie.
De hadde seilt fra Sverige og forelsket seg straks i den spanske havnebyen.
Torrevieja vil hedre Nils Gäbels minne og tilegner dette monumentet til ham og hans familie.
Kommunen viser sin takknemlighet for hans utrøttelige arbeid med
å grunnlegge det første skandinaviske fellesskap på Costa Blanca.
Atlas International har gjennom sitt bidrag gjort det mulig å føre opp dette monumentet.
