Next we see amwc, the best preserved in all of Europe ( I think this might be the 3rd time that has been claimed).This is Sergovia. It is a beautifully renovated wall with high battlements every 20 metres. A wonderful historic city, with a high arched roman aqueduct still surviving.

Three night trains in a row. What were we thinking!? Deciding that that would make us crazy, we canceled those plans and opted to spend a few more days in Madrid.
