Travel Theme: Art

View of Cómpeta from the Mirador

Village of Cómpeta through the Mirador


Here is the view of the mountain village of Cómpeta taken from (and through) the Mirador.  The village is situated at 638 metres above sea level in the foothills of La Maroma (the highest peak of the Sierra Tejeda).

The Mirador panorámico (look-out point) is a Gaudi-esque balcony, marking the entrance to the village, and a place to marvel at the sight of the white village tumbling down the hillside overshadowed by the majestic backdrop of Monte Maroma.

This post is my response to the Travel Theme photo challenge – Art

  3. Cómpeta is the nearest village to my home, as I live in the countryside nearby. I often stop for the view on my way up to the village to do some shopping or to collect the post. I never tire of it.

    I really enjoyed trying out your Photo Challenge for the first time, Ailsa. My added bonus is trying to fit the subject around my blog. 🙂

  4. How beautiful, Marianne, and it makes such a stunning frame for the picturesque little village it peeps out over. Thanks for sharing this little gem! xxx Ailsa
