June 1 – Happy June to you, and happy tenth wedding anniversary to my wonderful Jim ❤️! We are celebrating by taking a day off in the very nice Hotel Victoria, with comfy pillows, a balcony with a view of the mountains, and a jacuzzi tub. Really posh! Here’s our view:Puebla de Sanabria is a small tourist town, between the Rio Tera and the Rio Castro. I thought we had said goodbye to the Rio Tera, but here it is again!
We walked across the bridge toward the Old City, and the first thing I saw were the steps going up to the castle. Please don’t make me climb those steps with my pack on!
Luckily, the trail kept to the road, and I was spared the steps.
After getting settled in our hotel, we set out to see the town. There is a twelfth century church here:
There is an equally ancient hermitage:
There is a medieval castle / fort:
There is a Museum of Gigantic Heads:
Now for the bad news. With the exception of the castle, all the attractions are open on weekends only, and today is most definitely a Thursday. Oh well! We strolled around the Old City, looking at the tourist shops:
Jim got to try on some armor and weapons:
The views from the ramparts were pretty spectacular:
There was a video inside that showed the history of the area, so I got to see some of the gigantic heads after all! I guess they were used for parades, maybe? Let me know if you know.
So, that was our day, along with a wonderful meal and some natilla for dessert. Love you, Jim! ❤️
