This old Cotija on the far outskirts of Estapona sits deep in the arroyo Hondo below high Los Picos de Reales. Uninhabited the small house is a classic example of the old style of Andalucian home. Stone walls, plastered with lime and painted white with a stone and clay tiled roof. The structure is reminiscent of many European working/ living structures with sheep etc underneath and people living above. The walls are now riven with a large crack that is irreparable. I stated painting it in the winter rains because it reminded me of the North England small cottages of Cumbria.
