The Road to Villacarreido

Looking towards Villacarreido from the hotel


  1. Hi Keith,
    What a great picture, looks like your on the top of the hill. It looks so different than anything I have seen, are those houses stone? I love it.

    • Those houses are built from the local stone, as is the palace. It actually stands on the side of a hill … I meant to post some more pictures, but the wifi fell over on Wednesday, and didn’t come back. But, I will post some on Monday.

  2. It looks like a place with some great stories to tell. That house right on the corner with the manicured gardens looks intriguing…..

    • The ‘house on the corner’ … it’s actually a huge building, and a very well-regarded school; I have a note of the name somewhere.

      One of our Spaniards was an ‘old boy’ of that school, and spoke very highly of it.
