Archaeological remains of a Roman quarry from the second century B.C. This opencast quarry runs parallel to the coastline along more than 60 meters (Source: pilardelahoradada.org)
Tens of years treading those stones, and now they are remnants of ancient Rome.
This year, I have tried to have an orchard. Two years ago I tried with lettuces, but I had got nothing.
Now, I have tried with onions and cherry tomatoes. And, yes, that is the result.
Very ecological red tomatoes (some of them have life inside).
During the holidays, not only beach, eat, relax, man lives. There are also times for fun.
One of the most popular areas of the Mar Menor for drinks is La Curva of Lo Pagan.
One of its most iconic nightlife spots, Santa Maria, which, on the outside, is a replica of Christopher Columbus' ship, which traveled to discover (or rediscover) the New World.
Summer is the time of year used by pilgrims and walkers to do the Camino de Santiago.
Perhaps the most popular route is the North, which starts in the south of France. But there are other routes, such as the Southeast. From Murcia, Alicante or Valencia, you can do this route. Over thousand kilometers.
With this photo, I finish the visit to this beautiful natural place.
This is the exit of the Strait of La Arboleja. You just have to climb two meters tall. It also serves as entrance. Here you can find much more information about this fantastic geological place. (Spanish)
In some sections inside the Strait of La Arboleja, we can find water. Across the strait, you can see how the walls squeeze water through the rock.
It is not recommended to go in the rainy season, as it can be dangerous water level inside.
Entering a little more in the Strait of La Arboleja, we can see how narrow it is.
Another thing to highlight is the indoor temperature. These photos I took a few weeks ago, while outside were 30 ° Celsius, inside was less than 20 ° Celsius. A coolness was welcome.
The whole area of the Strait of La Arboleja is an area of limestones that has been eroded by water over thousands of years. In fact, this area has fossil remains of more than 9 million years. You can find coral debris, because it was submerged by the waters of the sea. Everything at southeastern of Spain was the last area to emerge from the waters.
In the picture, caused by the water canyon of the Rambla de Lebor.
In the following days I invite you to visit one of the places, geologically speaking, most important and beautiful of the Region of Murcia: the Strait of La Arboleja / La Agualeja.
Only 1,5 km from Aledo, is this place, which is accessible by car, up to this wooden bridge.
You know that the first of the month at the CityDailyPhoto community you can find the Theme Day. This month: Street Lamps.
Those street lamps you can find them at La Santa of Totana, a green place at Totana (40 km from the city of Murcia), close to Aledo.
There is no link to the theme day portal, but here you can find (temporally) thumbnails for other participants.
Siguiendo la corriente de la comunidad CityDailyPhoto, me he propuesto dejar en este blog fotos de Murcia, como forma de mostrar al mundo qué joya de ciudad y de provincia tenemos. Agradecer al creador de ParisDailyPhoto su gran idea de mostrar la ciudad de uno mismo desde otro punto de vista. Following the tide of community CityDailyPhoto, I proposed to leave in this blog photos of Murcia, as a way to show to the world what a jewel of city and province we have. Thanks to the creator of ParisDailyPhoto for his great idea to show the city of oneself from another angle.
The Region of Murcia is located in the southeastern of Spain, between Andalusia (west), Castilla-La Mancha (North), Valencia (East) and the Mediterranean Sea (South).
The city of Murcia is the capital of the Region. Other major cities are: Cartagena, Lorca, Caravaca de la Cruz, Jumilla, Yecla, Bullas, Mazarrón, Aguilas ...
