Hello friends and colleagues, walking through the narrow and steep streets of the town of PAMPANEIRA the surprise is guaranteed, just around any corner you can come up with a beautiful corner or a craft store, as in the example I present, an interesting facade with exposed crafts, hope you like. Then a few letters on the villa.
Pampaneira is a Spanish municipality belonging to the province of Granada. It is located in Poqueira ravine in the central-western part of the Costa Tropical, about 66 km from the provincial capital. It borders the municipalities of Bubión, Capileira, La Taha, Órgiva, Carataunas and Soportújar. Much of the municipality belongs to the Sierra Nevada National Park and Historic Ensemble of Poqueira Gorge.
When the Kingdom of Granada surrendered to the Catholic Monarchs, many residents took refuge in the Alpujarras and continued for almost eighty years with their customs, religion and language. They were the Moors of Granada, who endured in their rugged mountains, until Don John of Austria, special envoy of King Philip II, ended with the violent war existed.
The subsequent depopulation was full and had to repopulate the land with Castilian alpujarreñas but especially Galicia and Leon, in an edict of 1487 was said to participate in this noble Granada War get redemption for his crimes. It was, therefore, a pressing invitation made to the nobility and their servants to abandon enrolaran Galicia and in the campaign, and they did. That is why the names of many area sites-Capileira, Poqueira, Ferreira, and Pampaneira Xumpaneira, for example-are reminiscent of Galicia.
Pampaneira continentalizado has a Mediterranean climate due to the altitude at which it is (more than 1000m) and being in the foothills of Sierra Nevada (3482m). That means it has cold winters, where it is not uncommon to have snow and ice, and a little warm summers, with extreme maximum above 35 degrees but below 40 degrees. Temperatures are softened by the presence of the Mediterranean Sea. Rainfall is variable and even abundant, with drought period in summer and cold drop in autumn.
The tinao is an architectural solution, typical of the traditional architecture of the region of La Alpujarra, in the Spanish provinces of Granada and Almeria, which creates spaces covered with semi-private or semi-public area, to have a structure of beams on the street, on the which is usually located a room or private home
The Tinao is one of the architectural elements specifically protected by the equity in the Alpujarra Historic Site, as a matter of BIC.
In a way, the tinao has commonalities with the arcades and passages (also called sheds) and in terms of its social function, with other architectural elements, such as skates Soba Valley.

This is a good presentation of this multicolored handicraft work and the showing of those balconies. You have managed the light very well on this white wall. Good colors and sharpness.

un altro simpatico e caratteristico aspetto della vita andalusa.
Come in tutte le tue foto il colore e i contrasti dominano indisturbati in un effetto scenico sempre gradevole.
Ciao e buona giornata
