…Go out in the midday sun

A gallery this time; we went out exploring the hinterlands of Andalucía, so these are just some images of the areas we visited.

These pictures come from the coast road, Rodalquilar (site of a former gold mine and processing plant), Cortijo del Fraile (setting for Federico Garcia Lorca’s Blood Wedding and some scenes of For a Few Dollars More) and Albaricoques (location of several scenes of For a Few Dollars More, including the final shoot-outs).

By the way, there’s a very nice restaurant in Albericoques, run by a man who, as a child, was an extra in the film. The restaurant has posters, stills and props from the film around the walls, and does very good food very cheap (€9 for a three-course meal with drink). Hostal Alba – tell them I sent you.
