Órgiva – Then and Now #7

Of all the photos so far in the series, this shows perhaps the biggest change in Órgiva. Over the decades, several buildings have come into being. The church is almost obscured in the modern day shot.

Today, the street runs parallel to the town’s main road between the old and new town halls and leads to Coviran supermarket and the internal market (see map). On market days there’s often a man tapping a percussive instrument with his eyes shut.
