Arcos in Andalusia

19" x 19"

In Andalusia, in Spain, a chain of mountains runs from Arcos to Ronda, rising... falling… undulating. At one time settled by shepherds from Africa, the area became the frontier between the Kingdoms of Castile and Granada. Constant wars were fought here, beginning in about 1250 and ending in 1480 when the Catholics expelled the Moslems and took control of the area.
sky ablaze—
still the echoes
of war cries
