Photographer's Note

MORELLA is a walled town located on a hill-top in the province of Castellón. There are traces of settlement by the Iberians, succeeded by the Greeks and Romans, Visigoths and the Moors. From the early 17th century to the Spanish Civil War, the town was often fought over, due to its strategic situation between the Ebro and the coastal plain of Valencia.

In the 20th century the town and surrounding area became depopulated, a trend that has only been reversed in the early 21st century. The population of Morella now is around 2,500 souls.

THIS PICTURE is a real oldie, it was scanned from analogue print. It popped up going through my back catalogue and thought I might as well share it with you.
