We read in the paper recently that the restoration of the iconic church, La Iglesia de Las Salinas, near San Miguel de Cabo de Gata, had been completed, so we drove there this afternoon.
There was still some scaffolding in front of the facade but even so, it did look very striking next to the beach and boats.
By the church and on the shore were growing some interesting succulent plants. These have adapted to survive the salt-saturated soil.
While we were in the vicinity, we drove on to the Faro and looked down at the Sirens – a series of jagged rocks which are the remains of a volcanic chimney. No wonder a lighthouse is needed here at the south eastern tip of Spain. The rocks are aptly named!
