So this is going to be mostly pictures......
|Hotel Catedral, Plaza de la Catedral, where we stayed.|
|Palacio Episcopál, Plaza de la Catedral|
|The very fortress-like Cathedral as seen from the hotel roof terrace.|
|La Alcazaba as seen from our hotel roof terrace.|
|Bar Montenegro, almost next to our hotel|
|and another one!|
|Basilica de Nuestra Señora del Mar|
|Iglesia de San Pedro|
|The School of Art|
|La Hacienda - tax office.|
|Shops downstairs, carved windows and arches above.....|
|both buildings at Puerta de Purchena.|
And then inside the Cathedral. Obviously these few pictures don't do justice to the inside - there are carvings both wood and marble, it's gilded, there are wonderful paintings too, this is just a small sample.
And for the foodies......
|Lunch at La Lupe. Quesadillo + chilli @ 3 euros each. Plus a beer each.|
|La Lupe again for dinner, 1 x house salad with grilled chicken and jalapeños @9.50|
|Secreto a la brasa - very tender beef done on the griddle 2 @ 14 euros.|
|Another day, more food! At Casco Antiguo for lunch, a Thai salad 1/2 size starter.|
|Timbale of monkfish and prawns for my main course.|
|Restaurant Casco Antiguo house burger. And did he struggle with this!|
A wonderful couple of days but now back to a normal healthy diet - less food and more exercise!
