A Warm Welcome to El Dorado Lodge
A warm welcome to the El Dorado Lodge website. El Dorado is a cosmopolitan English speaking Regular Lodge operating under the Grand Lodge of Spain. We meet 18 times a year in Fuengirola on Monday evenings. Our membership is made up of over 10 different nationalities
Our ritual is based on AASR (Ancient Accepted Scottish Rites).
If you have ventured here to explore what Freemasonry is, or what do we do then hopefully we can provide you with a taster for that and a bit more on our website.
Freedom, tolerance, brotherhood. Three keywords with which Freemasonry can be characterised. Freemasonry is based on everyone’s right to search for truth independently, strives for the general fraternity of the people, cultivates tolerance, seeks out what unites people and seeks to remove division.
Freemasonry is not a religion, an ideology or a philosophy of life. And certainly not a sect or secret society. The Order of Freemasons is a democratic association, whose members strive for a deeper understanding.
Of course, the Order does not stand alone in this endeavour. But freemasonry distinguishes itself from other organisations in that area by its special method of working. In doing so, she uses symbols and rituals, which depict the life course of man in a symbolic way.
Symbols are tools for conveying thoughts or feelings that are often difficult to put into words. In our daily life, we unconsciously serve countless symbols, which everyone immediately understands: a bunch of flowers, the wedding ring, the national flag, the cross, a handshake, etc.

A gallant knight,
In sunshine and in shadow,
Had journeyed long,
Singing a song,
In search of Eldorado.
Those who think free will want to be in the company of others who also think freely. You do not want to get someone else’s opinion imposed. No dogmas. You seek your own route through life. But not lonely, not alone. You are looking for a place where people listen to each other. Search for answers to life questions. That is what Freemasons do.
Freemasonry uses the implements of operative masonry to teach moral and ethical lessons, but these are only the beginning of the Freemasons Working Tools. To apply these rules to our working lives raises in my mind some very challenging questions. Which...
Only by truly knowing oneself we will achieve our masonic duty, namely to better the world by bettering our ourselves.
Throughout the history of Freemasonry many men of influence and accomplishment have been drawn to the fellowship of the fraternity. Some, by society's standards, were successful men before they petitioned for membership. Others went on to accomplish great...
