Comments Off on Z A _ _ _, psst it’s a secret! Spain, Zafra

So there we were cruising through Extremadura when we happened to stop in at Zafra. Our guide book barely gives it a mention. There’s not much to do in Zafra, which is part of the appeal. There is a 15th century castle which has been turned into a hotel. We booked a room with vaulted ceilings and enough space to swing a ham. It was very nice!

In the evening we joined the locals for a beer and a spot of people watching in one of the town’s old squares.

The next morning we had to drag Paul to the train station while he went off on one of his we could buy a little do-her-upper here rants.
