A beautiful day today and perhaps we should have gone to the beach but instead we went to Nijar as the town is holding its annual feria this weekend.
We were disappointed when we found that instead of glamorous girls in flamenco dresses and handsome men on horseback, as in the town fairs in Granada Province, the centre of Nijar was filled with a not very colourful horde of locals casually dressed and seeking out the makeshift bars lining the streets. These were blasting out dreadful and very loud Spanish pop music so we escaped to the top of the town to seek out quiet corners.
We found plenty of these in the narrow lanes of the old town.
There are colourful renovated houses freshly painted and ….
…. many others in a dilapidated state but nevertheless charming.
We even came across some caves in use.
Returning to the town centre we came across this vintage Renault parked under a no parking sign. This was definitely worth a photo.
