Lovely walking to start – past some places where both sides in the Spanish civil war were holed up. One can imagine the sniping that could have taken place.
Then we had views of the quintessential Spanish landscape of olive trees.
In a couple of villages we’ve seen communal laundries in good condition but don’t know if they are still used.
Finally into Alcalá la Real. I’ve been told that the castle is well worth going up to, for a couple of hours. However, I was exhausted and decided that I didn’t need this cultural edification today. I admired it from afar while savouring the best ice cream ever.
Private rooms tonight – a luxury!
