Today we had a fairly short drive further northeast towards the Parador of Guadalupe, another new Parador for us. We drove through the mountains.
Guadalupe is the site of the Royal Monastery of Guadalupe. It has been a pilgrimage destination since the fourteenth century. At the location where pilgrims first crested a hill and looked down on Guadalupe there is a Hermitage.
The Parador of Guadalupe is right next to the cathedral.
The view of the Parador and the Cathedral from the balcony of our room blew me away when we walked in.
We have to leave here fairly early tomorrow to meet Roger and Gail at the airport in Madrid. So this afternoon we drove back up to the Hermitage and recoded Duke’s second car review of this trip.
When we got back to Guadalupe we went exploring.
We had a picnic in our room for dinner.
The view from our room is pretty at night too.
