The charm of the abandoned countryside houses. Santa Caterina de Binidalí.

A former grain farm of 1800's that has certainly seen better times than the present.  

It is located next to the Cami de Cavalls before crossing the road to Binidalí.

The unceasing heat and the wind that has suddenly started to blow from the South, make me think of the approach of a Summer storm.
