A serious number of tapas bars.
All with quaffable wines. The tapas bar next door has their own, excellent red vermouth.
Some bars have outstanding tapas! And it’s BRILLIANT fun, finding out which one!
Seriously good food.
eg: La La Galeria “Home again, home again, jiggy di jig.”
Nice to be remembered.
Even nicer to have nice food 🙂 So far, had an outstanding mushroom risotto.
There are two theatres, and a special events auditorium.
Even the main theatre does weird 🙂
Eg: ‘Boris&Ingrid’. Quirky.With a young musician that I thought stole the show. Used sampling to build layers to his playing and singing. Clever. A good musician and singer. Not a bad stripper either. But you had to be there.
My favourite is an “off-Broadway” theatre.
Type of play?
One was about a car crash, and insurance scams. You had to be there 🙂
This theatre doubles as a cinema. Mainly on Wednesday nights. Showing classic/cult movies, in a variety of languages.
One such was ‘Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot‘.
Organic market on Saturdays.
Regular markets every day.
Fresh bread every day.
(1) Homemade orange&chocolate galleta (cookies/biscuits)
(2) Corner shop that has Pedro Ximenez sherry AND Jamon de Teruel
(3) Organic shop that carries Canadian maple syrup
(4) Tongue sausage with pistachios.
Am in a two bedroom apartment, where Julia comes in to clean once a week. All the above, is within easy walking distance.
And the bike has underground parking.
Even when it snows all morning, this is the effect……
…..and even that disappears in the afternoon.
So this is my valentine to Spain 🙂
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.
And to you too!
Don’t worry. Weather cloudy and only 11degC.
Down from sunny and 16degC, on Friday 😉
Valentine schmalentine , not a fan.
However, your love affair with Spain sounds perfectly wondrous!
Long may it be so.
Happiness & Serendipity!
Not too keen on the old Roman valentine’s day traditions myself!
