Paris Vivant Exhibition

The exhibition, Paris Vivant, 1867-1960, aims to offer the pictorial richness of a few generations who lived under the Eiffel Tower and on the banks of the Seine, all the concerns and longings to come to fruition as an artist. Many of them touched fame and recognition, others covered by the great masters developed a noble and valid painting although they did not have the great art dealers; However, in that anthill of artists, everyone lived and felt the art with authentic dedication. (Extract from 'Paris Vivant. From Montmartre to Montparnasse, more than a century of painting'. Text by Martín Páez).

Ricote Valley

A perfect image to show the Ricote Valley, where the Segura river crosses mountains, riverside forest and traditional orchards.
The Ricote Valley, also known as the Morisco Valley, is a historic region of the Region of Murcia, in Spain, located north of that Region and in the middle of the Segura River. It is made up of the municipalities of Archena, Ojós, Ricote, Ulea and Villanueva del Río Segura.
Its historical origin with the denomination Valle de Ricote is located at the beginning of the 8th century, with the Muslim invasion of the Iberian Peninsula.
If there is a place where you can still feel the sensitivity of the Moorish culture in the environment, that is the Ricote Valley. Winding orchards, river and a special charm are the ingredients that make this valley a true delight for explorers and seekers of genuine experiences. If you are devoted to good food, culture and outdoor sports such as hiking, rafting or climbing, you are in the right place.

Jump of the Bride

History and legend.
Salto de la Novia (Jump of the bride) is located on the right bank of the Segura River, in the homonymous area, between Ulea and Ojos. It is located on a steep slope that flows into the riverbed and is crowned by a rocky pinnacle on which a late-Roman watchtower, known as Pileta de la Reina Mora, was erected.
Legend has it that many years ago the Ulea Bride Jump was the scene of the tragic end of a love story.
It was the time of the Reconquest and a very beautiful Christian noble fell in love with the Moorish king Abnt hud. One day, when he returned with his beloved horse, they were chased by the Moors, and when they were caught, he jumped from the cliff that formed a precipice along the river, disappearing with the bride and the horse under the flowing waters.
There are still those who believe that on the night of San Juan, coinciding with the summer solstice, as it is a spell and spell night, the enamored couple can be seen floating over the waters breathing the scented airs of orange and lemon trees.
Salto de la Novia is in the middle of the image. (click to enlarge).
