Biar, Spain

Several posts back, I mentioned the Casa Rural Mas Fontanelles. It is located a few kilometers from the town of Biar. While overnighting at Mas Fontanelles, I decided to take in the town of Biar itself. Here’s a view from one side.

Those terraces make good use of the land, farming wherever possible. The castle at the top, like the one in Chinchilla, was under renovation so I missed out on that. But I did get some good exercise hiking through the town. Here’s a view down one of the streets I climbed up.

Yeah, spend a couple of hours meandering up and down the likes of that and you’ll work up a nice appetite and handsome calves, too. The town itself has a nice church worth a look and a few restaurants, one of which I utilized to satisfy the rumbling of my stomach.

These are the types of places I enjoy most. There’s enough to see and do without being overwhelmed. Furthermore, the people are more approachable, which makes for more opportunities to learn culture first hand. Enjoy the journey.
