Calp

Spain


Day trip to the picturesque town of Calp, easily recognised thanks to the stunning Penon de Ifach.

The winding cliff road has dramatic views but it’s lined with villas and apartment buildings creeping up the hillside. One building (La muralla roja) caught my eye immediately, you’ll see why once you start scrolling through the photos below. The graphic shapes, the greenery, the sea, the sunshine and the striking colours that cover the outer and inner facades. The project appears as if it is emerging from the rocky cliffs it sits on. Walls alternate between red, lilac, pale pink and blue, whilst the deep azure of the Balearic sea backdrop. 

Make sure you also spend some time on the beach and don’t forget bathing suit, like I did. 

TIP: La muralla roja (Spanish for ‘The red wall’) is a housing project by architect Ricardo Bofill. If you like his work you can find several projects in this area.
