Calle Salada y Plaza del Socorro

Just a few pics today of a short but pleasant stroll down Calle Salada, stopping off at the Plaza del Socorro before returning home.
Looking down Salada, one of the steepest streets in Olvera.

The Plaza del Socorro, a very pleasant and peaceful square at the bottom of Salada.

The Iglesia del Socorro nestles in the corner of the plaza.

Looking over the plaza and the view beyond from the peñon (hill)above the plaza.

With temperatures at about 25°C it was extremely tempting to jump on the bus.

Thankfully, halfway up the hill home there's a sheltered spot where we sat for a while taking in the views across to the Sierra de Lijar in the distance.

Looking up to the church and castle.
