From Spain to India

Multi-cultural Tour with Costa del Sol DFAS

Costa del Sol DFAS (Decorative & Fine Arts Society) founded in 1988, was the first DFAS Society in Spain. A friendly, active and thriving cultural Society, we promote the enjoyment and knowledge of the Arts internationally and interest in the cultural heritage here in Spain. Attending our lectures is not just a great way to learn, it’s a way of meeting likeminded people and making new friends. We also arrange cultural 1-5 day trips along with many popular social events.

We’re delighted to introduce you to our 2016 - 2017 Programme of lectures given in English by accredited speakers from the UK.
This season’s lectures cover a wide range of subjects including international artists, old masters, photography, film, design and archaeology. Our cultural journey also takes us to India for the splendour of the Mughal Empire and around the world exploring the secret language of religious architecture.

You are warmly welcome to join us as a Member or a Visitor.
