This morning we walked over the cliffs from Las Negras to San Pedro. It was a perfect morning for it and quite a few other hikers had the same idea.
San Pedro can be reached only via a narrow cliff path or by boat.
It is a charming, sheltered little valley with a sandy beach and a spring.
Succulent plants, such as the one featured here, thrive in the sunshine.
There used to be a community living here which must have been almost self-sufficient, but in centuries past they suffered from pirate attacks so the castle was built to protect them.
When roads and mains facilities reached Las Negras, the community abandoned their houses to move there. The ruins are now squatted in by hippies and the place has become a Mecca for them. Our only objections are that their standards of hygiene and regard for the environment leave a lot to be desired.
