Waiting for a bus in the afternoon sun can be quite taxing, but if it’s at the bus stop at the turning off to Soportújar from Órgiva, then at least you’re in a lovely spot. In fact, we think it must be Spain’s best bus stop. We’re unsure when the model of the village was put in place, but it’s certainly eye-catching. Cross to the other side of the road for some stunning views.
Soportújar – ‘the place of arcades’ (soportales = arcade) – is a cute village 940 metres above sea-level and a ten minute drive on the way up to Pampaneira and the other white villages. We’ll do a separate post about it and its links to witchcraft and boiled children.
If you’re walking or driving past, take a look at this lovely piece of work. Even if it’s just a…er…flying visit.
(Sorry the images aren’t great, we haven’t got a decent camera at the moment.)

Witchcraft and boiled children? I can hardly wait!
Remember when we were children and were told not to cross our eyes in case the wind changed? Something like that…
Ha, yeah, or not to frown in case your face got stuck like that 😉
