La Ermita de los Frailes

La Ermita de los Frailes

Photo taken this afternoon of the ruins La Ermita de los Frailes in the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata, Almeria, Spain. This iconic monastery was the scene of the real life crime of passion on which Federico Garcia Lorca based his famous play, Blood Wedding. While the Regional Government and the owners who farm the surrounding land argue over who should pay for its restoration the buildings continue to decay.

About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.

    That’s an incredible photo Margaret! What a place. I love it.
    It’s getting cold here by the way (at Porthcurno Cornwall). Is it still about 75 degrees F there?

  2. Hello Paul,
    It has been quite fresh here the last few days with an average temperature of about 17C. This is due to a north westerly air stream which flows over the snow of the Sierra Nevada before it gets to us. During the second half of the week we are expecting temperatures to return to over 20C.
