Aguilas cont...

After leaving the CIMAR experience [ see previous blog] we travelled [ a couple of minutes walk]  along the coast to Rincon del Hornillo.
Hidden in a small corner behind the beach at El Hornillo at the foot of a residential area is a wonderful example of the work of Juan Martinez Casuco. He spent 12 years developing the site using broken tiles found in rubbish dumps. Even the wrought iron work was made by him.
The work is very reminiscent of Antonio Gaudi and the ultimate recycling project.

The first sight of the stairs is breath taking

Every stair front is slightly different

Date completed or started?

Comfy seats and interesting shapes

The Eagle represents the area

A little kiosk, sadly not open

Mosaics seem to flow around the trees

Even the Street is named after the artist

Shapes of every kind

Steps through the residential houses

This lamp standard has the signs of the zodiac worked in mosaic

Road roundabout at the top of the steps

Lush vegetation, and views of the sea

I guess this is a self portrait weather vane

Lamp standard

View from the beach, The garage seems to be out of reach !
