Albarracin

The old wall


This morning we explore Albarracin. What a lovely village. Quite steep as we make our way to the top via steps and narrow cobbled streets and then a gravel road to the old wall on the crest of the hill. Doesn’t help that it is the hottest part of the day. Albarracin dates back to the 16th century. Some of the buildings are really something. Once again we notice that the tops of the church steeples are tiled with that Middle Eastern feel.

We return via the valley with a fast flowing stream full of fish. The difference with this village is the trees – much more greenery than most of the others.

Back at the apartment we have a late lunch and settle down to watch some of the Le tour on Kim’s computer – a mountain stage today.

We decide on Tapas again tonight. Such a wonderful selection – haven’t had them in Tassie but Megan says they are not a patch on what is served here. Of course when ordering in Spanish it is a bit of a lucky dip – we reorder our favourites until well sated.

We decide to climb up to the wall again in the cool of the evening – only just enough light to make it down the gravel road again.
