While we can’t get out and travel much, I was hoping we could share some of our favorite places, food, people, photos, whatever from our travels in Spain and especially Sevilla. Please feel free to add some photos and let’s get out of the house through our daydreams of Spain.
One of the first images you will see if you are flying into Madrid and grabbing a rental car is this unique statue. The statue is entitled, El Rapto De Europa (The Abduction of Europe) by a Columbian, Fernando Botero. According to the Wiki article it represents Zeus (The Bull) with Europe (“naked, relaxed and somewhat voluptuous”) riding it into the sea to Crete.
I like the way you think, Chris. Got so excited I had to make myself an account (long time fan, long time reader).
This is the lake La Llosa del Cavall, Vall de Lord. Beatiful place for a swim, and the nearby town of Sant Llorenç de Morunys offer some medieval vibes. Their 11th century church is definitely worth a visit!
I went to a wedding at this castle in 2011. It’s the Castillo de Viñuelas just north of Barajas in Madrid. It was first built in the 1200’s and then remodeled in 1939 as a home for Franco (I just found out this from the wiki).
