Luciano Rodríguez Quirós, owner of Venta Luciano, died on the 8th of March, at the age of 73. This gentle person began the business back in the fifties and during half a century built it up, receiving awards along the way, such as being selected as one of the Cien Andaluces del Turismo by the Junta de Andalucía in 1992.
Who doesn’t remember him in his van with the loud speaker announcing, “Venta Luciano, every Tuesday lunchtime, BBQ and a Flamenco Show from 1.30 on…”?
Back in the late 80’s or early 90’s he let our noisy rock band practice in one of the outer buildings on the premises, free of charge, such was his generosity… and patience!
