... like to lie in the sun. El Capricho de Gaudi is a wonderful example of Gaudi's architecture, but on a smaller scale which I think helps you appreciate his work even more. Rather than try to describe the amazing decoration of sunflower tiles, interesting iron window seats, the attic and typical Gaudi tower I will let Clive's photos show you. What is sad about the house is that the person for whom it was designed died the year it was finished, it was hardly ...

We left San Vicente and followed the wonderful NW Spanish coast (when you can see it) and went to Ribadesella. Originally we were thinking of anchoring but then decided to moor along the pontoon in the marina. We weren't going to stay long, just overnight.

We got to San Vicente ...

After the cave, we drove to a small place called Bárcena Mayor to go on a walk through the countryside and have a picnic. We couldn't have asked for better scenery!

For our last stop, we went to Cabezón de la sal to see a medieval prison. This ...
