• The black Osborne bull

    The black Osborne bullMany tourists see this 14 meters high bull at the highways of Spain, black, strong and proud, and think this concerns a symbol of Spain. However this bull is actually only advertisement. It was a commercial trade mark of Osborne (producers of sherry and other spirits) but the wide presence of the bull all across Spanish roads made it a very popular symbol in the Spanish countryside. However, meanwhile it became a national symbol and also one of the most popular motives for photos of the tourists.

  • San Roque

    San RoqueSan Roque is a small town with a population of 25,000 near Gibraltar. It is part of the province of Cádiz. It was founded by the original inhabitants of Gibraltar, which abandoned the town in 1704, after the takeover by the Anglo-Dutch forces during the War of the Spanish Succession. This way, San Roque official motto is “The town of Gibraltar that lives in San Roque”. From San Roque you have a good view to Gibraltar and although Algeciras. San Roque itself is very nice, with its small streets and nice buildings. It´s worth a visit to drink a coffee in a little bar.

  • Nerja, always worth a visit

    NerjaOn my other website I already started writing a little about Spain especially this town. The last years I have been many times in a little town called Nerja. It´s about 50 km east of Malaga. The town is well known, because of its caves which is the third most visited object of interest in Spain after the Prado in Madrid and the Alhambra in Granada, which is about an hour away from Nerja. At my last visits I used to stay in a Hostal called Hostal Casa Mercedes. From here it´s a walking distance to the town and only a few hundred meters to the beach which is very nice to visit. In the low season the prices a very good so you have to stay there.
