This one tiny complex amid the vast colonial mining area in the vicinity of Mineral de Pozos appeals to me for an odd reason. I will explain later. This particular complex consists of two building and a mine shaft.
The higher building strikes me as beautiful in its simplicity.
The higher structure seen from above. It has four chambers. The roofs of all buildings out there were originally made of wood. There is absolutely nothing of those wooden roofs remaining anywhere. Not a scrap. I suspect that all of the wood was used for fuel in hard times by the remaining inhabitants of the area. Because of the climate some remains of the roofs would otherwise have been preserved.
Here is what appeals to me so much about this building. Vestiges of the wall decor remain on the walls in those four rooms. I have not encountered this in any of the other buildings that I have visited out there.
Odd that the old wall decor should appeal to me so much. Forgive me for the overwhelming number of photos of that.
