... Mirador with spectacular views of the valley and the reservoir. Back to the hotel after a decent uphill climb, I met up with Jack, who was enjoying his breakfast in the Lounge over looking the valley (brave soul). After packing up, we took a short stroll around the square before catching a taxi to our bus, destined for Jerez de la Frontera. Turns out there IS a bus station in Arcos.
