Ancient towns - the real Spain's close at hand

At first glance the hinterland of Vera Playa appears to be just desert - closer examination, however, leads to the discovery of a wealth of ancient towns, many of them packed with superb civic buildings and period town houses and other properties. Pictured here is the Town Hall of the small but important town of Cuevas de Almanzora, which, in the nineteenth century became wealthy through silver mining. Cuevas has an interesting town centre and a recently restored castle in which there is now an art gallery and an outdoor arena/theatre. The town is about 15 kms from Vera Playa.
