An Escapade to Ronda – Part 3


Apart from the bullring, the most famous landmark of Ronda is the Puente Nuevo (New Bridge) which connects the new town with the old town. Both are separated from each other by a gorge, which is more than 100 meters deep. The bridge is located not far from the bullring. And it attracts a lot of tourists! Lars and I…

We usually stay away from touristic places, but the Mezquita in Cordoba is too magnificent to skip. Anyway, Lars and I arrived there early in the morning of a hot day in August.

According to a traditional account, a small Visigoth church, the Catholic Basilica of Saint Vincent of Lérins, originally stood on the site.[10][11][12] In 784 Abd…

Photo Essay – An Introduction to the Alpujarra


This is a region in the province of Granada, located on the south slopes of the Sierra Nevada. Lars and I had often seen roadsigns towards this location and somehow we thought that one afternoon would be enough to explore it. We were wrong! Anyway, we started our tour in Lanjaron: This is a spa town with a beautiful historic…
