Love that enormous wall!

Love that enormous wall!
Zarza de Granadilla, Estremadura, deserted village due to it being cut off from the world after the surrounding valley was turned into a reservoir in the 50s.

It looks beautiful. How sad the residents must have been to leave.

I don't think the Franco regime gave them much in compensation either!

Great shot, Andy! The depopulation of such regions in Spain seems for some to be progressing in a frightening way.

My girlfriend has recently been at a 4 day conference in Soria on this very subject. I have been aware of these matters since I was knee-high to a grasshopper. The knowledge of how this happened is easy to acquire. The answers to this ever-deepening crisis, less so.

What a terrible shame to just abandon these gorgeous houses. If you could manage to reach it, why can't others? No roads there?

Yes. But it's now a tourist destination only, Jenny. Like most rural villages and towns in Spain, de-population and migration to the big cities has been, and still is, a massive problem.
