We woke up, packed our bags and were on our way. We would be returning to Barcelona in a couple of weeks and would have plenty of time to see the city. Since we were starting to burn out on large cities, we decided to get on our way to Espinar, which was a suburb of Sergovia and a short way from Madrid.

... by the remains of the current king's dad (once his body had gone through a 50 year chemical process to prepare the bones for this room).
