Santillana Gil Blas to Bielsa

Today was our longest driving day of the trip. We drove east about half way across the neck of the Iberian Peninsla. The scenery changed dramatically when we left the coast.

Tonight we are surrounded by the Pyrenees Mountains at Parador Bielsa.

While we were at Santillana Gil Blas I had hoped to visit the Caves of Altamira.  Based on a recommendation from my friend HD I had really wanted to visit the Caves to see recreations of some of Europes earliest rock art. But I had forgotten that almost all museums in Spain are closed on Mondays so it didn’t work out on this trip. I guess we will have to come back again!

As our starters for dinner tonight Duke had pâté and I had soup.

And then we each had the really delicious steak as our main course.
