Good to see how village life used to be. This is free but a donation is appreciated. Doesn’t take long to get around but there are quite a few stairs.

Certainly worth visiting as you walk up the main street, an insight into how hard life in a Spanish rural town would have been. Donation suggested.

It gives you the image of past times of hard labor, with instruments for olive oil and cellar with pig for meat and goat for milk, simple and natural. No photos allowed, too bad
