Getting Closer to Heaven at Nijar
Even though there aren't any madding crowds to escape from as Nijar is a quiet and peaceful Spanish town I still prefer to seek refuge by the large crucifix that sits atop a small hill.
Benches are provided for the weary traveller and the area offers terrific views of Nijar and the mountains behind it. You have to navigate a steep path to get to the top, but it's well worth the strain on the legs.
It's a nice spot to take a book or just to have a little doze. At night the path and the crucifix are illuminated and look spectacular. [more ]
