Ucles, Spain

As much as the large cities of Spain are full of wonderful things to see and do, so are the small towns. One town in particular that I found interesting was Ucles. There’s a monastery there, built on the foundations of an old castle. Here’s a look up at it from a small cemetery down in the town.

There are a couple of boutique hotels in this town that offer very comfortable accommodations. You’ll also find a few small restaurants that will serve local cuisine. Staying in a town like this gives the opportunity to sit with the residents in their tabernas and to hear about their lives in an unfiltered way. This is a favorite activity of mine and leads to great material for my novels.
