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.)
