Grosa Island

Grosa Island and La Manga.

The Grosa island is a Spanish island in the municipality of San Javier in Region of Murcia. It is the only island in the environment of the Mar Menor which is outside of it. It is a very steep volcanic cone that exceeds 90 meters, at a distance of 2.5 kilometers north of La Manga del Mar Menor.
The island was a refuge for Berber pirates until the eighteenth century.
Noted for its botanical and ornithological richness: it nesting petrels, cormorants, peregrine falcon, Audouin's gull. It has a pier and there were only buildings associated with military activities. The island was a military zone until 2000, when it was ceded to the Murcia to carry out activities related to the environment (until then it was the place of training special units of combat divers and bomb disposal Dive Center of the Navy).
It forms a perfect volcanic cone, but like most eroded volcanoes at Region of Murcia.

Torre De La Horadada

The Torre de la Horadada is a town located by the sea, dependent parish town of Pilar de la Horadada (22,000 inhab.), Province of Alicante Spain. Seaside Village, which has recently experienced its development through tourism. It owes its name to two factors: first, the sixteenth century watchtower (image) and the second, the place where the tower is located: Punta de la Horadada (tip of the pierced) (the "pierced" is due to that this projection of the sea ground, has small caves made by water, ie it is drilled, ie holed).

Walking On Water

It seems a miracle. It seems that these people are walking on the sea. But not, they're on marine rocks that are a few inches from the surface. Beach Cat. Torre de la Horadada.

Lizards Sunning

This photo is not of the islets in the Galapagos Islands. But could be lizards of those islands, because all these humans are uploaded to those rocks for sunbathing.

Look up in the sky!
A pity. Just before shooting my camera, those seagulls were in formation.

El Mosqui

El Mosqui restaurant began as a beach bar in 1956, is a great place to take paella, and above all, the pot of rice and fish (typical dish from the Murcian coast). A delight.
It is located in Cape Palos.

Monastery Of Saint Gines De La Jara.

This monastery is abandoned.
It was built by the Franciscan Order in the sixteenth century under the patronage of the Marquis of Velez. From this period dates the main facade in which the shields are those referred Franciscans and Velez.
As a green oasis in the arid fields of Cartagena around the monastery lay a fertile and luxuriant garden and gardens.
In the nineteenth century the monastery was disentailed and began the ruin of the monastery. Some chapels with frescoes of the XVII century were demolished. It was purchased by individuals who made several reforms to make private house.
Today, despite having been declared of Cultural Interest by decree of 28 February 1992, the monastery is in a lamentable state of ruin due to neglect.
It is located next to the Mar Menor, before arriving at La Manga.
All about that monastery, here.

Here you can see lots of photos.
