Regardless how long your journey was
and whatever you have seen on other vacations or on the way
here – when you reach the mountain pass and view the
broad valley of Rodalquilar, which stretches out towards the
sea, you can finally breathe in deeply and put time on hold.
There is something special there,
a peacefulness, a distance – something which cannot
immediately be put into words. Only after some time can these
impressions become clearly expressed
as something special, something different.
In Rodalquilar, nature is - with its strong winds and expansive
waters – constantly
in motion, where rocky cliffs on the coast or in the mountains
seem to have just been torn out of the hillside.
The eternal myriad of colours of the rocks and stones in the
mountains and bays make it easy to imagine how volcanic eruptions
once created the valley, now calmed, overgrown and covered
with blossom after a rare rainfall. As if time has stopped,
everything appears silent like it were possible to see silence.
Rodalquilar teaches seeing and silence.
