Postcard from Salobreña #2

Old door
The road east from Almuneçar crosses the Rio Verde and slowly makes its way upwards past slopes dotted with almond and chirimoya (or custard apple) trees until, 13 km later, a spectacular vista opens up to reveal Salobreña, a white town tumbling down a hill topped by the shell of its Moorish castle and surrounded by fields of sugar-cane.

What's not to like? (Although we haven't quite figured out how to eat the chirimoyas yet.)

What came first, the door or the wall!

Hope you will take photos of the trees ... chirimoyas etc.
