The Thin End Of The Wedge?

Oh dear. Frigiliana is a pueblo blanco, a white village. The rules are simple. All external walls will be painted white, so that the village presents a unified appearance to those who see it. This is its charm, and also its beauty. So what have we here? Someone, it appears, who knows better. In their garden they want a bit of colour to set off the planting, so they ignore the rule and paint the walls bright green. It’s bound to be an ex-pat as no Spanish resident would even consider anything other than white. Worse still, it’s in a part of the village where it is especially obtrusive. It’s an eyesore. Hopefully, it will quickly catch the eye of the authorities and the perpetrator will be required to return the walls to white.
