    Siesta time!

    September 27, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    After we finished exploring the Arab Baths, we started the trek back to our apartment and, of course, we had a mountain of stairs to climb and it was very sunny and hot. We first crossed the Puente Viejo, which is the oldest of the 3 bridges that span the 120 metre deep chasm that carries the Guadalevín River and divides the city. It was built in 1616 and it currently is only available to pedestrians. Once over the bridge - which do have lovely views - we started to climb the stairs in the Jardines de Cueñca towards our apartment. There were several spots to walk down to the gorge to see views of the Puente Nuevo, but I was over it all, and just wanted to get back to he apartment for a cool drink and rest. In the evening we again just popped down to our local tapas bar for a quick meal and a glass of wine, as we want a fairly early night as we have the bike tour tomorrow morning.Read more
