After a tapas lunch in Rodalquilar we returned home via the mining route inland which takes you through Cortijo del Fraile.
The old Ermita, famous for being the scene of the crime of passion on which Federica Garcia Lorca based his play, Blood Wedding is in a sorry state.
Last year we were able to explore the ruins but now they are fenced off.
The government wants the old ermita restored but insists that the owners of the cortijo pay for this which they are unwilling to do.
While the dispute continues the old building continues to decay and will surely soon collapse.
You can see the state of the building in these photos.
