this was a nice room and great bathroom. The shower was big enough for 2 :). the only downfall was that the WiFi was not in our rooms and we had to go down to the lobby each time to call home or send an email. Staff very helpful and coffee was wonderful.

I don't know whether I was more proud or embarrassed by this fact. Anyways they were part of a Taekwondon team.

My host mom suggested that I take a walk by Alcázar through one of the parks near our piso, which lets you see the castle from below, in its entirety (instead of up close and personal or inside, which you get on the museum tour). Alcázar was once a vacation home for the kings of Castille and León, and an Arab fort at one point, among other things.
It was a nice walk, and an awesome view that I normally wouldn't get to see. Everyone here makes sure to mention ...
... Such was his religious fervour that it was built so that he could see directly into the main basilica from his bed. His queen’s bedroom was on the opposite side with a similar view. One wonders how their love life fared. It is certainly an impressive structure, set in carefully manicured gardens with a view right across the plain, and in turn seen from across the plain. Yet the Bourbons did ...
