Today we drove about two hours northeast to Alcañiz. As we neared our destination we came around a corner and could see our Parador for tonight in the distance. It’s the castle on the hill!
After checking in we went down to the old town center. The church is enormous and has cranes (birds not lifting devices) nesting on the roof.
Under the main square there are tunnels and rooms that they used to use for food and ice storage. After enjoying a coffee in a nearby cafe we explored the narrow passageways. Most of them required you to stoop to walk
our parador room is in a tower overlooking the countryside. By the time the sun went down the fog had come in and we could barely see the church below us.
For dinner Duke had a veal steak. Our deserts were really special. Mango and cream for me and brownie and raspberry sorbet for Duke.
