Beautiful place. Family run and most hospitable. Be sure to ask for the room on the 2nd floor that overlooks the picturesque mountains. It is situated on the corner with the mountains on one side and pastoral valley view on the other. Nice breakfast for reasonable price.

Lovely city and we got to run with a few Bulls as practice in case we come back next July for the actual event. Later in the day we continued to the Pyrenees traveling over mountain roads to Bielsa.

We thus had a quite dining night a nice restaurant on the ...
... distance - I did a happy dance - love that sight.
Came around one bend in the highway and here is a shepherd sitting on the guard rail while his sheep graze the edges of the highway. Amazing and much better than mechanical mowers. Win/win. Shortly after we see the massive reservoir that was on the map. The colours were stunning and when we stopped to take a pic the dam was teeming with fish and the fisherman were out for their Sunday catch.
... in Spain was much better. As were the roads. What was intriguing is the huge number of abandoned buildings without a roof or windows being taken over by the greenery. These ranged from farmhouses to previous expensive homes to castles. I think the cost of maintenance just couldn't compare with starting again. We did visit various towns with preserved old buildings. One of which ...
