Loja, in the Granada province of Andalucia, is our nearest big town and has a wonderful Moorish quarter. You enter the Barrio de La Alcazaba hrough a Moorish horseshoe arch. The neighbourhood has mostly inaccesible by car as it has tiny narrow steep streets, which were previously the home to military leaders. At the Mirador Arqueológico de La Alcazaba you have an amazing viewpoint of the north of Loja and Monte Hacho domineering in the background.
We had packed a picnic lunch to eat at the viewpoint as it was lunchtime, not only for us, the local cats were keen to have their dinner too. With a starter of cat biscuits and then a delicious main of chicken, helpfully snipped into cat-sized chunks. These were indeed well looked after and spoilt pussy cats.
