Arriving to Cabo de Gata

sunny 26 °C

After we left Conil de la Frontera we drove along the coast taking a short look at all the villages, some of that were very nice, like Barbate, others are also very nice but very dirty. On the way we visited the old roman site of Baelo Claudia near Bolonia. All the ruins are in a good state and it was possible to feel like the romans were living beneath the walls and the tempels of that little city. At that time there were up to 2000 people living there. After that we went to Tarifa. This is the southest point of Europe and with good weather you can clearly see Africa at the other side of the sea. The distance is only 14 km. Yesterday it wasn't clear enought so we only could see a mountain of Africa through the dust and the fog (look at the pic included). It was time to move on toward Cabo de Gata. We drove over Granada, Puerto de la Mora (1380 mt o.s.), Guadix, desert of Tabernas (what we want to visit one of these days), Almeria and finally San Jose to our favorite hostal: Hostal Santuario. We will stay here some days visiting some of the wild beaches in the National Park. Hopefully the weather will be good to us. This evening we will eat PARILLADA DE MARISCO for sure.
