    En este lugar tan bello vivi mis primeros años de vida, concretamene hasta los 13, a caballo entre la finca Ortegicar y Cañete la Real. Fue un tiempo maravilloso, lleno de vida con tanta gente que conviviamos en el cortijo. Eran tiempos de bonanza en la finca, ahora esta muy deteriorada y no hay gente de an lado para otro. De todas maneras me he alegrado de ver esta imagen que tan buenos recuerdos me trae. Gracias por existir
