Postigo del pan (photo)

Taken in Capileira in September 2012. This is a small door (postigo) from where bread was once sold – or was delivered through. It’s only about 40-50cm high. In some of the higher villages it can get pretty cold in winter, so getting your daily bread without having to open the door, was – and still is – welcomed.

In Órgiva delivery vans sweep around the roads and tracks in a hurry, delivering bread. You can hear them a mile off as they hoot their horns to tell people they have arrived. And there’s nothing like fresh bread.
