Sometimes you have to be grateful to animals and children. Without a hunting dog and a little girl, the caves of Altamira and their treasure might never have been discovered…
Behind rather inconspicuous walls, very close to the main railway station, lies the Real Monasterio de San Jerónimo de Granada. For us, next to the famous Alhambra, it is a sight in Granada that should not be missed.
As the bus winds along the coastal road, passengers are offered an irresistible view of the idyllic harbour nestled in a bay. Luarca, often referred to as the “White City” on the “Green Coast”, exudes an aura of serenity and traditional beauty.
I am standing on a viewing platform on a cliff overlooking the river Eo, which forms the border between Galicia and Asturias here. On the Galician side is the small coastal town of Ribadeo, which I will visit for a short city walk.

I am standing in a large square. Around me are laughing, singing, dancing and sometimes limping people who are happy that their path ends here in Santiago de Compostela.
