Shrimp comes home

WHEN he died his funeral cortège stretched for seven miles and was attended by over 100,000 people. So it seems fitting that the childhood home of flamenco star Cameron de la Isla should be turned into a museum.

San Fernando town hall is now negotiating with its owners and hopes to turn the dilapidated home into a tourist site. Boarded up for two years the house was last lived in by the singer’s brother Jesus Monge, also known as El Pijote.

Visitors can already follow a tourist route around the Cadiz town to see his old haunts.

Cameron de la Isla (Shrimp of the Island) died in 1992 at the age of 42.
