This is taken up the rambla, about 20 minutes walk from the house.

A goatherd leading his flock near the house ............... and goats in the rambla in the village

 

 

There are old mines in the hills, though we have never dared to enter.

There are interesting walks a short drive away along the old mining railways near Serena. Take a torch for the tunnels. When you get there Serena is a really beautiful village.

Flamenco at Alfaix fiesta.................................................................and a Good Friday procession in Vera.

 

It is about 2 hours drive to the Alhambra, said to be the second most beautiful building in the world.

The picturesque and touristy town of Mojacar is about 15 minutes drive, and also the fishing port of Garrucha.

And Mojacar Playa has a superb beach.

 

Here is a view of the village taken from across the valley:

In Garrucha antiques can be made to order ................. and parking is very convenient for the harbour.

Main roads have pedestrian crossings... Sometimes there are surprises on the beach... Shops have disabled access
