Saturday was our longest day of driving so far on this trip. We drove 240 miles south and a bit west into Spain again. Now we are in Marvao on the Spain Portugal border just into Portugal. Marvao is on top of a mountain with a stunning 360 degree view. In the picture below you can see the castle on top of the mountain. That’s where we are.
This morning before we left Zamora we explored a bit the square outside our Parador had beautiful trees trained to grow together to create a canopy.
Before we left Zamora we visited the Ethnographic Museum.
There were many interesting things in the museum. Take a guess at what these are.
On our way to Marvao we saw at least two cars with Ukrainian license plates. You wonder what their story is.
When we stopped at a roadside cafe for coffee and lunch we enjoyed watching the storks.
After we checked into our Pausada we went for a walk up to the castle
Our room at the Pausada da Marvao is charming with a great view.
