I can't believe I got to stay in a castle. This parador chain managed to maintain the castle's charm while keeping it just modern enough for the 21st century guest. While the view from the castle isn't much, who cares! It's a castle.
Great rooms (decor), great breakfast included.

Good night because I'l be up at 7.
Last night's rain finally stopped at 10:30 and today is sunny but with a strong onshore breeze.
Walked and cycled the entire town as today was market day so I always like the hustle and bustle. The street traders are on all the side streets surrounding the municipal market.
I sorted my lunch and dinner ingredients with a bit of pointed and ...
... for road space.I can see why the coast is so built up because the mountains and hils are only 3 miles from the coast everywhere so everyone is trying to be near the water. That is why I went inland on Sunday then you can see more rural settings.
In spite of the economy the Spaniards are developing the road network all the time and the high speed rail line is being extended southwards as I passed today.
That's it at 16:55 from the Mediterranean.
