Calvario River

Sign in to follow this  



The Calvario River is a small river that goes from the mountains of the south, winding by Calvario and flowing by Santa Teresa and out into the Mediterranean Sea.


One of the most famous sights along the river is the Alcázar de Calvario, a castle originally built by the Moors. The expanded area on the top of the picture is the part that was added after the Christian San Pedrians took control.


Farther down the river is the walled town of Santa Teresa, which is home to a large abbey. The abbey is part of a monastery that is home to Carmelite nuns who bake scrumptious pastries.


This is just a picture to show off how I've been using LOTs of scenery props. :P As you can tell, San Pedro is quite dry & rocky due to its location in the Mediterranean. Regardless, there is plenty of fertile land for agriculture.


Near the mouth of the river is the small village of Cecial, with a small medieval church on a plateau nearby.


Last but not least, although it's not along the river, the nearby Bizquena Monastery is an important site to see. It is a Franciscan monastery home to a very old statue of the Madonna de la Bizquena.

So, what do you think? :)

The painstaking devotion I'm seeing here with the river placement and all the perfectly located rocks and tree's with the settlement that just seems so perfectly organic, its amazing. The amount of time it must take for you to achieve such perfect detail. Wow basically, well done :D
