"Gargoyles & Graffiti"chronicles architectural elements that I find interesting or unique in my travels. Gargoyles are my passion, but today graffiti (which I hate but am learning to love as it is everywhere) is as much a part of architecture as the gargoyles and decorative railings that thrill me.

Motril and the Surrounding Area

Jimena and Moises at a local restaurant in Motril
We had a great time the day we docked in Motril. We didn't expect much and it was so much better than we hoped for. For one, Motril is a very industrial port. Other than the La Cabeza Cathedral, which I will post on another day, there was just a few restaurants to visit, but we had fun there. We started the day off with a great breakfast and espresso coffee near the Cathedral. We then took a taxi to SalobreƱa, which is a lovely white village in the mountains. We had an excellent day there at the Castle and wandering the narrow streets.

More information on this charming village can be found here. It is an amazing area of the Costa Brava, Spain.

Lemon drink
Then we returned to lunch in Motril at a restaurant Moises had spotted earlier. I was in the mood for something to drink besides water so I had the lemon soda shown above. It was really good. I had a wonderful sandwich for lunch. My husband opted for a more elaborate meal. I need to ask him what it was, but it is a dish we also have in Mexico and he said it is much better here in Mexico, not Spain. Of course knowing him, it is probably just different, which he definitely doesn't like.
