We were pleasantly surprised to discover it was market day.
The square by the church and the narrow streets off were packed with colourful stalls.
It was one of the best town markets we have seen. There were stalls selling, fruit and veg, spices, flowers, plants, clothes, shoes and much else.
The town was bustling and we crept away to walk up to the castle, the subject of our next blog.
We returned to the town to explore more of the streets as we liked the old buildings.
There is quite a contrast between buildings in decay and others beautifully restored.
After many years in Spain we have a nose for a good tapas and sniffed out the Hostal El Puente. We were not disappointed. The photo shows lomo and anchovy served on what seemed like pitta bread and before we were given an excellent paella tapa and their speciality which is slices of baked potato on the plancha with herbs and sauces.
