One thing to notice around the rural parts of Andalucia is the hanging of peppers on the exteriors of buildings. There are two reasons for this, when the peppers are naturaly dried in the sun they can be used in various recipes as an important ingredient the other reason is the Matanza Ever wondered why the Spanish chorizo has that deep red colour? Well its all down to paprika and the humble red pepper.
Pics of a cave in Orce village displaying some peppers outside the door. Very Andaluz and a typical sight around late summer.
