A Long Weekend in Andalusia Pt. 1.

Last weekend was a Bank Holiday here in Spain, celebrating the 1978 Constitution on Dec. 6th and some Virgin Mary or other's on the 8th - although I prefer to think of it as marking the anniversary of John Lennnon's death.

Luckily for us, my Dark Lady had Friday 5th off and I don't work on Fridays, so we set off to Granada while the rest of Spain - well at least the few who still have a job - were working. We decided to avoid the motorway for the first part of the journey and so went through the Sierra de Cádiz, stopping off for a coffee at Algodonales in El Cortijo a roadside restaurant/café/hotel with a charming exterior and interior. Here's a photo.
The Romantic Spain that many look for, but few find.
