Hello friends and colleagues , today I present another view of the villa Casorla taken from the balcony of Zabaleta , with the remains of the cathedral of Santa Maria destroyed in the war of independence , has not returned to rebuild , I hope you like, then some letters on the villa.
Cazorla is a municipality located east of the province of Jaén , in the autonomous community of Andalusia , Spain .
It is the largest and capital municipality of the Shire Sierra de Cazorla . It is located in the foothills of the Sierra de Cazorla Cerezuelo river valley , a tributary of Guadalquivir .
Around 2,000 BC , in the older river terraces Cerezuelo Cazorla, the first stable settlements were established. Nearby, in a period known as the Loma del Bellotón hill, a small town in the culture of Bronze (1500 a. C. ) is located. The Ibera culture developed significantly in these lands.
During the romanization , the Romans settled in this region, known as " Saltus Tugiensis " named their saws as " Mons Argentarius " the riches of silver and salt found here . The Roman presence is extensive in the county , and even found some important remains within the current town of Cazorla .
During the Muslim occupation , both Cazorla and the neighboring towns are to fortify , as indicated by archaeological findings .
The Lordship of Cazorla during the Middle Ages was a frontier area of great importance . Testimony to this is the dense network of castles and fortresses to delimit the Advancement created in 1231 , with the donation of the town of Quesada and villages by Ferdinand III the prelate of Toledo.
In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries litigation between the Crown and Mitre questions of jurisdiction , privileges and rents impoverished Lordship originated. In 1811 , the Cortes of Cadiz abolished the civil jurisdiction of the Mitra Toledana on these lands , although not happen the same with the church . Cazorla and other towns and villages continue Overtaking dependent archbishopric of Toledo until 1954.
During the war of independence, the people of this district were distinguished for their patriotism , fighting heroically against the invader. Remains of the rawness of the moment, are the ruins of the cathedral of Santa Maria, which was destroyed and never finished completely by the invader. As a reward for services so high , the Parliament of Cadiz, granted , on April 1, 1813 to the town of Cazorla , the title of city with the distinction of " Very Noble and Very Loyal" . Later Alfonso XII Cazorla rewarded loyalty to the Crown, when the Carlist wars , giving his Excellency Hall category .

This is a splendid composition with very good colours, light and sharpness. You have balanced the view very nicely between the white village, the nearest green hills and the more distant rugged mountain. It is a very beautiful area.

Good POV and composition.
I like colors.
Have a nice evening and nice weekend.
Greetings from Southern Greater Poland.

Nicely composed shot of this magnificent scene. I love the way the triangle of houses is countered by a triangle of green mountains and the mountain sits atop both in the far distance.
macjake (56656) 2014-04-11 13:21
the white colored homes and buildings with the tan colored rooftops are very striking. I wouldn't want you to change anything about this view.
and the rough hills and rocks add a sweet contrasting element in the bg.

Ruins are a fascinating subject for me, beautiful but yet telling of such tragic history. This is a perfect composition on the scene, the cathedral perfectly placed, an ideal amount of the town, and then the expansive landscape beyond. All of the colors are so vivid as are the textures, which is amazing from this distance! Great shot, thanks as always for sharing

hai ottenuto una bella diagonale con le abitazioni e ci sono molte architetture interessanti che si vedono.
Il tuo taglio ha messo in evidenza le grandi montagne che incombono sul villaggio e il contrasto del candore delle pareti nei confronti delle rocce.

beautiful view, the composition is very spectacular and I like the splendid architectural details and the attractive POV. Great atmosphere,

Hola Angel ,
C'est un village magnifique , superbement situé dans son cirque de montagne .

One of the famous white villages of Andalusia? The shot is well composed, cleverly setting the village in context. The ruins of the cathedral placed to one side contrast well with the whitewashed houses and make an excellent focal point. Very good technical presentation.
Sergiom (60180) 2014-04-12 5:58
Il y a quelque chose de typiquement andalous dans cette composition. J'aime le blanc des maisons typique à la région et cette superbe campagne montagneuse.

This village may look old but it is very well situated, I like those mountains. Nicely captured with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Belle lumière qui baigne ce joli village entourée de montagnes, belle et intéressante composition
adramad (38077) 2014-04-13 8:28
Fantastico POV que nos muestra este bonito pueblo, con todo su tipismo, escalando por la ladera de la montaña, impresionante la montaña que vemos al fondo y que contrasta con la que se extiende a la derecha del plano, mas suave y accesible, también mas arbolada.
Muy bien gestionada la luminosidad y la nitidez, con un hermoso color, en estos tonos suaves.
Disfruta del domingo.
Un fuerte abrazo.
boa (6021) 2014-04-13 11:41
wonderful view from the balcony. Mountains in the background are impressive and the village looks interesting to visit. There are probably good restaurants and idyllic streets there. Harsh light but still a good photograph with an excellent overview and a good note, well done!
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-04-14 6:50
great picture my friend - sincere congratulations! The POV has been chosen very wisely and the view from it is just glorious. The charming town on the slope has been captured at the very right angle and the small church there adds very much to the cityscape. The background is very pretty too with all the vivid green hills and small house hiding among them. Great colors and well managed light.

A beautiful shot with wonderful color and detail. You handled the light excellently.
jcpix (13662) 2014-04-14 16:51
I can only assume there's not a bad view to be had on this village, another truly beautiful result! I really like this angle, as it provides a criss-cross pattern and layering of the village and mountains in the background. Vibrant green hillsides and stark white exteriors make quite the contrast, but a delightful one as the merge of nature and man-made structures comes together in harmony. A lot of depth and detail contained within this framework, and nice bright sunlight to see it all. :) Enjoy the new day. All the best.
claudeD (32775) 2014-04-15 2:33

interesting view of Cazoria. Nice village between the hills and mountains. Good composition. Fine presentation. Photo is very well done.
Have a nice evening.
ourania (31137) 2014-04-15 11:00
a lovely white town, compact and luminous in the characteristic bright sunshine of this region. I like very much how the town is tucked into the bottom right corner and in the beautiful mountainous landscape. There's a very pleasing brightness in this view, the colours are so vivid and attractive. The textures are very interesting too and make the composition look really rich. You used your vantage point in an excellent way. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
npecanhuk (65594) 2014-04-15 16:58
Certainly, a wonderful place!
A very beautiful and attractive picture too!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,

Hola amigo Ángel,
muy bonita composición la de este encantador pueblo tan blanco, que destaca en medio de las montañas que parecen querer abrazarlo.
Me gusta las proporciones que has escogido al encuadrar esta preciosa toma.
Hermosos colores, con buena exposición y nitidez.
Que bonita es Andalucía! y qué bien nos la muestras.
Nos están cogiendo ganas de conocerla cuando estemos jubilados je je.
Recibe un cordial saludo,
PS/ Buena Semana Santa.
tatadalou (6097) 2014-04-26 8:55
Bella vista sobre este pueblo andaluz y su entorno. Se nota una buena gestion de la luz y de los colores. Lo que me encanta mas es la composicion, dividida en tres planos bien destacados.
josepmarin (57799) 2014-04-30 12:11
Hola amigo Ángel,
me encanta la perfecta y armónica integración de la arquitectura blanca tradicional andaluza con el entorno natural donde se ubica, un ejemplo que deberían seguir casi todos los chapuceros y especuladores constructores de hoy en día.
Desgraciadamente no es así, y solo hay que ver algunas zonas del país para darse cuenta del descomunal desaguisado urbanístico y paisajístico que han perpetrado por todas partes.
Pero no pasa nada, aquí no va nadie a la cárcel por eso.
Bueno, vamos a la foto, que es lo que importa aquí.
Has hecho un buen trabajo controlando la fuerte luz solar, que las casas blancas se encargan de potenciar, y has alcanzado un gran contraste con el paisaje de montañas y su verde vegetación.
La calidad de la luz y de los colores es encomiable.
Un trabajo excelente.
ikeharel (57290) 2014-05-05 4:25
A bit too large KB photo, Angel.
Yet, I find this scenery from the point taken, is in marvelous contrast, and intriguing landscape for photography.
Beautiful houses in white and their archi.-design, stretched along the trough.
PaulVDV (22161) 2014-06-02 11:32
What immediately strikes me in this picture, is what remains of the cathedral of Santa Maria. Impressive, so close to the town and it has never been rebuilt. From this POV we can even see one of the statues in its interior. It seems to have remained intact.
The raw hinterland is in a stark contrast with the white houses of Cazorla.
You looked for an excellent POV to present us this splendid panorama picture.
Excellent sharpness and composition.
Best regards, Paul
