The drive from the house in Lónguida to SOS del Rey Catolicos was less than an hour. We checked into the Parador and went out to explore the town. SOS del Rey Catolicos was built in the tenth century as a fortress to defend against the Moors.
Duke asked the people at the front desk to recommend a hike and they suggested a hike in Foz de Lumbier. The trail follows the rail bed of the first electric train in Spain. We drove to the trailhead and walked through a canyon, along a River.
The canyon is a nature reserve especially for some endangered vulture species. We could seeing them flying and sitting on the cliffs.
Our card playing spot was one of the best of the trip.
We had an excellent dinner at the parador.
