The people responsible for making people feel welcome to Órgiva need to take a long, hard look at themselves, if this is the best they can do. But looking at this sign, they probably retired years ago.
No carved marble greeting, palm trees, fountains or spotlights at dusk – this is what the visitor sees as they approach town: a battered hoarding with an electricity grid substation behind it. The fact we’ve passed it many times and didn’t even notice it says it all.
In the town square there’s an attractive ‘map’ made of ceramic towns of Las Alpujarras which makes up for it (see below). It’s time to spend a few bob on a new ‘Bienvenido a Órgiva‘ sign, we think.
