... we arrived where we thought they should be, to discover they were more than 3km away and all of that uphill. The moral is don't trust hotel maps. Well before we reached the first church we were out in the country with the cows and crops. Santa Maria del Naranco is a 9th century former palace, small but quite fascinating. It has no aisles and sunlight enters through elongated arched windows. Unfortunately the guided tour was in Spanish, the guide did ...

I thought being in a cave would make me nervous, but the cave was nothing compared to how small and closed off this prison was. What is worse is that they used this prison during the Spanish Civil War (circa 1930s). Its scary to think they would have used such an inhumane place in recent history. But of ...
