Los Infiernos de Loja

Los Infiernos

Yesterday we went in search of Los Infiernos de Loja, the spectacular waterfalls of the Rio Genil close to the town. In the little village of La Esperanza, just to the north of the town, there is a signpost opposite the bar indicating Los Infiernos 600 metres. This lane ends after about 200 metres and one is faced by open fields with not a waterfall in sight. Fortunately there was a camposino (agricultural worker) working in a field and he indicated that we had to walk across this field to a pylon and from there we would see the falls. They are quite spectacular but difficult to photograph as it is somewhat dangerous standing on the opposite edge of the ravine. Further enquiries indicate that you can get to the bottom of the ravine by accessing the Rio Genil from the centre of the town. We will try this another day when it is not too hot.


About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
