On the road
the changing architecture and landscapes

TOLEDO TO AVILA
Spain is reputed to be a land of some ten thousand castles. Of them about 3000 are recognisable. We past several of these ruins along our journey.
The changing landscape from Toledo to Avila.

AVILA

AVILA TO SALAMANCA

Invading armys may have resorted to dressing as sheep to get close to this fortification. I know it worked for me.

Apparently there are 128 of these bull sign-posts on Spanish roads.

SALAMANCA TO PORTO

FATIMA

Fatima is a place of religous pilgrimage after the Marian apparitions, recognized by the Catholic Church, that took place there in 1917.

Pilgrams advanced on the cathedral on their knees and some burned offerings to the Virgin Mary.
