"This summer I finally took a trip to visit and stay in Ricardo Bofill’s La Muralla Roja, or The Red Wall, in Spain. This bizarre and beautiful building boldly juts out from the cliffs of Calpe and is a labyrinth of interlocking stairwells, platforms and bridges that twine around different courtyards. It is made up entirely of red, blue, pink and purple walls which are intended to contrast against the skyline and battle with the shadows caused by the suns shifting light. It is a never-ending maze of new perspectives.
We embraced the nature of the town and spent our days on the beach directly below the building and sitting out on our red balcony. Taking things slowly. We drove through the mountains to visit Fuentes del Algar to swim in the waterfalls, hike and drive through the little mountain towns such as Guadalest."
