We picked up a rental car in Granada and took a circuitous route to the town of Ubeda. The countryside was quite mountainous and at times reminded us of southern Utah.
As we left Granada we had some good views of Spain’s Sierra Nevada Mountains to the south. After the Alps and the Caucasus Mountains Spain’s Sierra Nevadas are the next highest Mountains in Europe. Right now they are covered in snow. It has been hazy the last few days so the picture below, taken from Granada is the best picture I have of them
In Ubeda we are staying at the Parador. On arrival Brian and Bonnie let us share their romantic package while we waited for our room to be ready.
We had a great time exploring Ubeda’s narrow streets and admiring the old buildings. We ate dinner at Cantina la Estacion. Below you can see Bonnie’s steak, the pork Brian and I each had and Duke’s lamb. It was one of the top two meals of the trip so far.
