Tordesillas to Leon

Today we drove about 100 miles north from the Parador of Tordesillas to the Parador of Leon. Duke and I stayed in the Leon Parador back in 2016. Since then the Parador was closed for a few years while they totally renovated it.

This afternoon we had our welcome drinks and played cards in the central Atrium

Later we walked about a mile to the center of Leon to see the cathedral. It didn’t open until 4 and we got there about 3:30. So we had drinks in the restaurant across from the Cathedral.

The stained glass windows make the Leon Cathedral one of my favorites in Spain.

We had one of the best meals of the trip in the Parador restaurant tonight.

My fish was steamed with vegetables in a cellophane like package. Here the waitress is opening it.
The fish was moist and delicious
The desert was a pyramid of white chocolate yogurt and raspberry ice cream was divine too.

After dinner we went outside to get some night time pictures.
