One of the mountain castles of León, Cornatel Castle is just far enough off the main tourist route to ensure you will probably have the castle to yourself!
The travel bug has buried itself deep into my soul. I love nature, sleeping under the stars, traditional villages, open markets, tasting local food and wine, and taking the path less travelled.
Whenever I get in the car I always have the urge to turn off the main road and take a backroad. Luckily I came across this gem of a castle found in Villanueva de Jamuz!
Smuggler Cove is a gorgeous all-weather anchorage on the south side of the Sechelt Peninsula. To access this park by land - hike a 4 km trail from the parking lot just off Highway 101. Fantastic!
Every year Hospital de Orbigo, Spain hosts the Justas Medievales del Paso Honroso. The first weekend in June brings a celebration of medieval artisans, games, food and music celebrating the legend of Don Suero de Quiñones.
El Páramo - a hilly, windswept, barren landscape 30 minutes south of León is where this unique winery is located. We visited in autumn, just as the grapes were being harvested - the perfect time!
