An Excursion to Medieval Spain

Yesterday, M and I were lucky enough to be invited along on an excursion to a couple of Medieval towns North of Madrid. My new Spanish friends, Alma and Jose drove us first to Pedraza, famous for its main town square. 

After a picnic lunch in the square, we headed off to Sepulveda, another mountain top medieval town, which was declared Historic-Artistic Site in 1951. 

Since the predicted rain didn't fall and force us indoors, we next went to a nature reserve called Hoces del río Duratón where we saw an unusually green river that has been carving its way through the mountains for thousands of years.

All these photos were taken by me. 

This is just a taste. Next weekend, I'll post about each place in more photographic detail.
