EXPLORING ESPANA - PHOTOS

In our little rental car we can go anywhere.... well almost

The gorgeous countryside - sunny every day here in Spain

Tarazona

The hanging houses in the Jewish Quarter - some being restored

Main drag of Tarazona

It's Cathedral of course


Always plenty of nesting storks

Monasterio de San Juan de Duero outside of Sori

El Burgo de Osama - the main pedestrian drag

and main plaza

The ruins outside town

finally the city walls

Yet another castle just in passing - near Ucero

Arriving at the very impressive gates of Burgos

The incredible cathedral at Burgos

They just let off fireworks after the wedding

Main Plaza at Burgos


Doing the tour of the Cathedral - lots of commentary

The cloisters

Heading back out of town we see these houses or are they wine caves

Exploring Covarrubias 


At the monastery at San Domingo de Silo

Follow a great rocky gorge

Then happen upon another castle & have to stop

Here it is around the other side - Turegano Castle

Heading in to Segovia

The gorgeous cathedral just around the corner from our hotel

The Alcazar - fully restored/renovated


Inside the Alcazar

Segovia's famous Acueducto

Inside Avila's walls

We walked the top - and then viewed them from outside - totally renovated

The streets of Toledo

Toledo's historic heart

The view from our window in Cuenca

Cuenca's clifftops (storm brewing)


Main plaza -Cuenca

Yet another castle on our way back to Zaragoza - Castle Molina de Aragon

Sunset over the river


Visiting the Aljaferia

The heavily restored Ajaferia

Main shopping drag in Zaragoza

Finally a photo inside the Basilica - services seemed to run every day and all day

The symbol of Espana - no bull

Heading towards the Pyrennes again (another road this time)


Some pretty rocky roads

and gorgeous villages

Coming down from the mountains to head in to Andorra

View from our hotel - this place is shop till you drop

Stop for the markets in Formigeres (France)

All lush & green

Following yet another gorge - much easier in a BMW

Exploring Carcassonne (again another renovation job)


At night - all lit up

Driving right in to the grotto!!

So many castles to explore (no reno job here)

But a full reno job done here!
