The outdoor market in Totana which lies at the foot of the Sierra Espuna mountains takes place every Wednesday. It starts around 7am and continues until 2pm and attracts a lot of visitors, some to browse, others to buy clothes or shoes or from a huge choice of fresh fruit and vetetables. Totana has a large number of immigrants from South America - Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Columbia.... - even Brazil although their language is Portugeuse. Some dress in clothes traditional to their countries which is fascinating and it is nice to observe the distinctive features of some of the original inhabitants of South America (before the Spaniards and Portugeuse arrived there). As you can see from my photo's the sun is beaming down from directly overhead and the temperature reached an incredible 34 degrees around midday. The trick is to walk in the shade of the canopy over the stalls and make your way to the end of the market and into the beautiful Park and enjoy a coffee at the cafe there.
