Gernika-LumoMay 15, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C
I was lucky to be able to spend a few more hours in Gernika this morning. I went to the market and managed to buy fruit and cake, using my less than perfect Spanish. I visited the Biscayan Assembly, the Gernika tree (new and old) and the Picasso mural.http://www.euskoguide.com/places-basque-country/spain/guernica-tourism/
