Ciudad Rodrigo to Salamanca

After having breakfast this morning at the Parador in Ciudad Rodrigo we headed  north to the prehistoric rock art site of Siego Verde. We took a tour with a guide of the animal carvings in the rocks near the river. The carvings were made about 20,000 years ago. 


It was cold and windy but it was very interesting to see representations of these animals made at the end of the last ice age. 

We continued exploring back roads in the area where the Duero and Gueda Rivers come together. There were big canyons and virtually no other cars 


Tonight we are in Salamanca. The Parador is a beautiful modern building. Can you believe that this is the view from the window of our room. 


For dinner we walked over to the main square. After dinner we took a taxi back to the Parador.
