|This casa is large, but doesn't really qualify as huge, with|
several sleeping quarters, a main room and a kitchen all
around the Spanish version of an atrium. But it is over
300 years old and beautifully renovated for new use.
Inside you can see how the original owners designed the roof line to provide a catchment for water right into a very large carved-out stone trough at each corner of the roofline.
The patio, shown here, looks across at the northern end of the Andes and gives the viewers a nice breeze in the afternoon.
|This is the wine "in production...."|
I'm off today to a small village called Curiti to attend a fair and see some more of this area that I'm working on to call 'home.'
