Its a shame that there’s no real equivalent to the Frenchie-loving ‘Francophile’ label for us Spain fans…Spancophile sounds so naughty!!
Anyway..The above shot taken from a hillside above Galera probably gives you a good idea why Mr Shpics loves the area so much.. but also why Mrs Shpics has a tendency to go further afield to shop…

Still not exactly heaven for mall-rats but it did the trick for us…
On the way back I had the opportunity to shoot yet another strom brewing…this time over the small town of Orce a few miles south east of Galera. Orce, for the information seekers amongst you, is said to be the site of the first human settlement in Europe. I don’t think they came for the shopping either.
