When I was in Arranjuez
Arranjuez is known to be nice. It was on Christmas and new year's leave when I was there, so I remember it as rather sleepy, but I fancied the fountains in the royal park heaps.
Castle was closed, of course.
But it had a wedding cake fountain with frosting.
I was stand-in for a statue. Who do you think is missing? A philosopher? A scientist?
Good for "indoor" marathons.
I would build a castle with more variation.
Then we went on this trip's final destination:
Cuidad real (the real city). This is the town hall. On the square in front of it, there is a famous clock with figurines that spins as the clock strikes twelve. We missed it at least by a quarter of an hour. As the Russian expression goes, "we kissed the closed door". But there were markets and a bakery with something I decided to send to Sweden :)
