At sunset, the fortress has a special golden light... Quiet and peaceful... And even you can find a Moorish princess there... Oops! Oh, no, that's me!
Durante la puesta del sol, la fortaleza tenía una luz dorada especial... Silenciosa y tranquila... E incluso pueden encontrar a una princesa mora allí... ¡Ay! No... ¡Esa soy yo!
Summertime...and the living is easy
"Summer in Salobrena"
Spent just under a month in Spain Aug 05 - most of it spent in Salobrena followed by a few days in the mountain village of Niguelas.
Salobrena is on the Granada coast, just under an hours drive through the Lecrin valley from Granada city. It's a white-washed small town, which clings to a rock set back a short distance from the Mediterranean sea. The rock is topped by a Moorish 10th century castle and the town is surrounded by protected sugar-cane plantations. It boasts a fabulous climate, unspoilt walks, clean beaches and some quality (and some not so quality! ) cultural activities. It is also very much a traditional Spanish family resort, and an extremely good spot to take small people.
Salobrena is an extremely laid - back, unsophisticated kind of place, perfect for a relaxing, carefree family holiday.
There was myself, my amiga 'the Gypsy Dancer' and three Small People - Can't say it was easy getting back into the hurry of life in the UK and wearing a watch again ; )
"Sunset over the water - Salobrena"
The Gypsy Dancer took this one...Dusk is such a great time in Salobrena, with the sun setting over the water, the smell of barbecued fish, a bunch of relaxed and happy people of all ages with natures backdrop, the sort that no modern technology can replace....
"The Streets of Salobrena"
Wandering around the little streets is a pleasure in itself ...There isn't much in the way of shops, but some lovely little cafe-bars where you still receive a complimentary tapa with each drink.
