The Indalo

There is a cave painting in the nearby town of Velez-Blanco that shows an anthropomorphic figure of a man holding a rainbow between his outstretched arms. This figure has been given the name of Indalo, and is supposed to protect people from the evil eye and from storms. It is supposed to give people good luck. Many of the houses of Mojacar are painted with this figure, and many of the tourist stores in the town sell many versions of the Indalo.
