Before leaving Ribadeo this morning we stopped at Lidl to buy some lunch supplies.
We crossed the river into the region of Alturis, drove along the coast a bit, then headed south on backroads. The roads were narrow and very windy. At one point we followed s small, worn sign down a dirt track to this church. The sign seemed to say that a battle with the Romans occurred near here.
A bit farther down the road near a crossroads on a ridge top we stopped for our picnic lunch.
It’s Wednesday night and we are staying at the Corias Monastery Parador. It opened in 2013. It is an absolutely beautiful Parador with a swimming pool and archaeological remains in the basement.
The Monastery library is to die for!
The building is quite large.
And so are the rooms.
We had dinner in the former Monastery dining room. Here are the highlights of the meal. Roasted goat leg with potatoes, onions and peppers.
Pear tart with apple ice cream.
Milk curd with walnuts and honey.
