Lorca to Mojácar

When they started building the Parador next to the castle in Lorca in 2002 they didn’t know what they would find when they started to dig. They immediately found ruins of an old Jewish Quarter and synagogue from the fourteen and fifteenth centuries. Lorca was strategically important because it was on the border of catholic Castillo and Muslim Granada. Before we left Lorca this morning we toured the recently excavated Jewish Quarter and the castle tower. It was interesting how they built the Parador over and around the ruins.

After the tour we left Lorca and headed to the coast. The drive along the Mediterranean reminded me of the California coast.

Tonight we are in the eastern edge of Andalucia in Mojácar. This is the view from our room.

For dinner we had pizza and sangria. I forgot to take a picture of the pizza.
