C/Infiesto Villaviciosa, , Infiesto, Asturias
And with these last few photos, I reckon we have covered Mestres very thoroughly indeed.
Worth an exploration if you are ever passing through, or staying in l'Infiestu.
Continuing my gyrations with the camera in delightful Mestres, a world of its own tucked away behind the flats on the eastern approach to l'Infiestu.
Mestres was once a separate village to l'Infiestu, on the south side of the old main road, to the east of the town, just before the level crossing that was replaced by a bridge in the 1920s or 1930s. It is in fact on the lane that climbs to Santianes, l'Oteru and Llozana (see my 'Lozana' pages).
From the old main road (the original N 634 before the by-pass was built circa 1990) Mestres is practically invisible, hidden behind blocks of flats. Would you believe it, I only discovered this architectural gem on 20 February 2010, on a mini-expedition up the Llozana road!
So, on this page and a couple more, come with me as I frantically clicked the shutter of the camera, recording this remarkable little community for posterity.
Tam - always game for a photo expedition - thought my antics with the camera highly entertaining.
We finished off the morning in the bar/restaurant on the Recta de Lleu (La Parada, see my 'Melardi' pages) over a huge chunk of fresh bread, water and a generous blanco.
