The first human settlement in the area date back to the distant times of the Celts, which are set in a place called Iporci. The Romans also left their mark, and there are many remains that testify to this, the most important of which is the stone bridge over the river Galindón, renovated in the Middle Ages. According to some authors, the Romans founded on the same settlement above town Fortuumade or Fortunales, located in areas of high strategic value. Other experts argue the existence here Hiporcia city, crossed by the Roman road that linked Hispalis with Emerita Augusta. After the dark over the Visigoths, Arabs are the architects of local progress through the exploitation of its silver mines. Also built a large fortress, the remains (one of the towers) still stand. The area happens to Christian power in the thirteenth century.

bella torre bianca, impreziosita dell'orologio.
Molto simpatica la presenza del nido con le cicogne e con il segnalatore di vento con la stilizzazione di questo uccello.
Il cielo blu è perfetto per coronare questa costruzione.

This is a very beautiful detail of the city tower.
l like the contrasts betweeen the white tower and the blue sky.
The storks are very lovely on the top.

The ideal place to build your nest:-) An image that blends some lovely architecture with nature. The white washed walls of the clock tower sit well against that peerless blue sky. Very good technical realisation.

Fine detail with that stork on the church tower. Good quality image, lovely blue sky.
Enjoy a nice day.

El azul y el blanco son uno de los más bellos contrastes existentes en la naturaleza, por lo menos los más elegantes.
Muy buen angulo para mostrarnos este campanario, el juego de formas, buen contraste, luz y el color es magnífico. Me gusta mucho también el formato cuadrado apretado que has aplicado en esta ocasión....
Una excelente definición...y una nota bien completa...Gracias...
Recibe un cordial saludo...desde BCN, de tus amigos.

J'ai passé une semaine en Alsace en septembre dernier et je n'en ai vu aucune. Beaucoup de nids vides par contre. Je te trouves bien chanceux, surtout avec un aussi bel édifice. L'ensemble est d'une grande beauté.
eldancer1 (25644) 2014-09-03 7:24
I want to move there! Sounds like a beautiful and peaceful little town. Nice capture of this bell tower and the birds. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Intéressant cadrage serré sur ce clocher avec ce nid à cigognes
Très bonne luminosité ambiante
A bientôt dans un mois
Cricri (101873) 2014-09-03 10:28
Superbe le cadrage du haut du clocher avec le nid et les cigognes, un fond bleu et une lumière bien gérée qui rend l'image magnifique

You got a wonderfully blue background here for the very white tower. It's a really nice close-up photo with great sharpness. The stork is a great inclusion too of course.
claudeD (30849) 2014-09-04 6:52
very fine and interesting picture from your wonderful region showing a very interesting architecture and as a great plus the birds on top of the tower. Very good informative note. The blue sky is simply amazing. From my visit to Andalucia I will certainly remember this blue sky which we could see all over our stay of ten days.Very well done.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg

At first, the storks in white had a perfect camouflage with the whiote tower, Angel, only on the second sightrealized how beautiful moment collected.
Fine photojob, view upwards well collected.

This blue and white combination is an eyecatcher, excellent photo with interesting POV and fantastic light, compliments
williewhistler (12739) 2014-09-05 12:50
the blue and white combination works well to produce a striking picture of the gleaming tower with the benefit of the nesting storks to add extra interest.
Warm regards from sunny Devon,

good and interesting close view, fine contrast of colors and light management.
jemaflor (81410) 2014-09-09 23:29
Bon cadrage avec cette architecture intéressante et le bon rendu des contrastes entre le blanc des murs et le bleu intense du ciel et puis excellent détail avec la cigogne et son nid.

Hola dear Angel
What a delightful close up. The bird's nest is the cherry on the cake! Stunning contrast of blue and white, impressive sharpness and light control. So beautiful and so typical of the beautiful Southern Spain.
ourania (27260) 2014-09-14 10:00
I like very much the vivid, contrasting colours of this picture, the dynamic perspective, the sharp outline and details. You are describing the picturesque tower in an attractive graphical way. The juxtaposition of the real storks with the forged one is amusing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
