Peņa de Francia 2

Peņa de Francia, Salamanca, Spain

The temperature was much cooler at Peņa de Francia than in Ciudad Rodrigo. There is a small dark grotto at Peņa de Francia with water running inside. I think that the water was special because of its color. There were small black bugs flying around that the Spanish call "mosquitos", but they do not bite people like mosquitos in the United States do.
In the first photo you can see the view from Peņa de Francia. I think that you can see all the way to Portugal.
The second photo shows the church that is on the mountain. It was very dark inside of the church. I rember seeing a statue of the Virgin there. The statue was dressed in clothing made out of cloth. It was not like statues I had seen before where the cloths are carved and painted.

other sizes: small medium large original auto
