Hello friends and colleagues , today I present the Square Log of the town of Cazorla, situated south of the Sierra and National Park of the same name , I hope you like it , then some letters on the villa.

Cazorla is a municipality located east of the province of Jaén , in the autonomous community of Andalusia , Spain .
It is the largest and capital municipality of the Shire Sierra de Cazorla . It is located in the foothills of the Sierra de Cazorla Cerezuelo river valley , a tributary of Guadalquivir .

Around 2,000 BC , in the older river terraces Cerezuelo Cazorla, the first stable settlements were established. Nearby, in a period known as the Loma del Bellotón hill, a small town in the culture of Bronze (1500 a. C. ) is located. The Ibera culture developed significantly in these lands.

During the romanization , the Romans settled in this region, known as " Saltus Tugiensis " named their saws as " Mons Argentarius " the riches of silver and salt found here . The Roman presence is extensive in the county , and even found some important remains within the current town of Cazorla .

During the Muslim occupation , both Cazorla and the neighboring towns are to fortify , as indicated by archaeological findings .

The Lordship of Cazorla during the Middle Ages was a frontier area of ​​great importance . Testimony to this is the dense network of castles and fortresses to delimit the Advancement created in 1231 , with the donation of the town of Quesada and villages by Ferdinand III the prelate of Toledo.

In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries litigation between the Crown and Mitre questions of jurisdiction , privileges and rents impoverished Lordship originated. In 1811 , the Cortes of Cadiz abolished the civil jurisdiction of the Mitra Toledana on these lands , although not happen the same with the church . Cazorla and other towns and villages continue Overtaking dependent archbishopric of Toledo until 1954.

During the war of independence, the people of this district were distinguished for their patriotism , fighting heroically against the invader. Remains of the rawness of the moment, are the ruins of the cathedral of Santa Maria, which was destroyed and never finished completely by the invader. As a reward for services so high , the Parliament of Cadiz, granted , on April 1, 1813 to the town of Cazorla , the title of city with the distinction of " Very Noble and Very Loyal" . Later Alfonso XII Cazorla rewarded loyalty to the Crown, when the Carlist wars , giving his Excellency Hall category .

Hello dear Angel,
We are learning Spain's beauties through your eyes and lense.
This one is also very nice. Empty streets adds a unique taste to your compo.
TFS and best regards

Hello Angel,

This is a nice presentation of this square with the distance on the pavement giving deepness. The stong light has been well managed. I like the shadows of the round trees on the ground.

Best regards


Ha Angel
what a difference it makes having the mountains in the bg, it really completes the scene well. And of course i have to comment on the clouds too :)
Bright and luminous visual, excellent exposure, wouldnt change anything.

Ciao Angel, bella inquadratura, ottima prospettiva, splendida luce e magnifici colori, bravo, ciao Silvio

Excellente photo et magnifique place bien décorée de jolie verdure. Belle présentation devant un beau fond de montagnes. Le clocher ajoute de l'intérêt à la photo. Bel éclairage et parfait rendu des couleurs. Encore plus beau en grand.

Ciao Angel
siamo in Andalucia e non vedo le classiche case bianche, sembra quasi un miracolo.
Molto bello anche questo aspetto di questa regione, le facciate dei palazzi si susseguono splendide e dietro, le montagne, sembrano proteggerle.
Ottima condivisione

Hello Angel,
Scenic view from the square of a beautiful Spanish town on a clear bright day. The architecture of the buildings is attractive. The length of the streets shown is giving depth to the photo. Like the setting of the picturesque town at the foot hills of these high mountains with fresh snow on them. Very nice photo with optimum clarity and opulent colours. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Angel,

The jagged bg mountains make a fine backdrop to the picturesque fg street-scene. Good sharpness and color with excellent framing and saturation. The brick clocktower at left adds depth and stands out from the rest of the skyline. Tfs!

Hola Angel.
Preciosa plaza la de este pueblo, que tiene el encanto añadido de la sierra, que domina la vista por encima de los tejados, la plaza tiene un gran encanto y ningún coche ni persona, algo poco habitual....
Un gran dia con el cual lucen los colores y todos los detalles.
Buen trabajo amigo mio, me gusta el lugar, una vez hice una noche de camino al sur, pero llovia tanto que no pudimos salir del hotel.
Disfruta del fin de semana.
Un abrazo.

thanks for sharing with us this fantastic
postcard with the Square Log of the town
of Gazorla situated south of the Sierra
a shot that has everything except life
its architectural details are wonderful
the brick clocktower adds depth
have a nice Sunday

Hola Ángel,
la vista de la plaza, con las casas y la iglesia, es magnífica, la has captado eficazmente por medio de un encuadre bien buscado, y con la inclusión de bellos elementos, tanto arquitectónicos, como paisajísticos, como esas preciosas montañas al fondo.
La luz es fundamental para conseguir una alta calidad en la imagen, la has controlado perfectamente mediante una buena gestión de la exposición.
Gran juego de luz y sombras, y buena saturación cromática, para dar más carácter a la composición.
Bello trabajo, amigo mío.
Un abrazo,

Hola Angel,
The town looks as a lovely small rural place, and with a nice shaded promenade on the middle of its square.
I assume it was a strong-daylight morning, and that had made you use a high-number shutter speed on this photo.
A minor issue, considering the beauty of the place we learn about.
Buen domingo,

Hola Angel,
Bella vista de la plaza, que se ve muy tranquila ! La composicion esta bien construida. Me parece que los tonos azules dominan un poco pero quizas sea mi pantalla.
