Photographer's Note

Como en todas las regiones que han estado sometidas durante mucho tiempo a guerras, razzias o similares, las poblaciones tendían a guarecerse a la sombra de los castillos, que servían de refugio en caso de necesidad. Pelegrina está en una no muy alta loma, pero que domina 2 valles que tiene a su alrededor. Se percibe todavía la estructura medieval -un tanto anárquica- de las casas, en torno a la iglesia, que aquí no destaca mucho pues no es muy grande, una bella iglesia románica del s. XII. La luz y el viento rozando los sembrados contribuían a iluminar con un toque especial este lugar.

**********

Like in all the regions that have been submitted during a lot of time to wars, razzias or similar, the populations were tending to shelter in the shade of the castles, which were serving as refuge in case of need. Pelegrina is placed in a little hillock, that dominates 2 valleys around it. There is still perceived the structure medieval - somewhat anarchic - of the houses, around the church, which here much does not emphasize since it is not very big, a beautiful Romanesque church of the XIIth century. The light and the wind rubbing the sown fields were helping to illuminate with a special touch this place.
