After blocking out most of the overhead lighting, a pet hate of Sophie’s, it was a very quiet night, despite the amount of neighbours. Fortunately, everyone was more or less parked nose to tail, but with loads of space, and this is our favourite way of sharing a space if there are a number of other overnighters – so much better than being racked up side by side.
Given the rising temperatures, we thought we’d head up to the castle before the midday heat. We said our goodbyes to our Guernsey neighbours, and after more chatting we took to the steep path upwards. There was actually a small village within the castle walls, and after a walk right round the ramparts, we checked out the little back lanes, then meandered back down to the van for coffee and to catch up with blogging etc.
After taking advantage of all the facilities, we left Bragança, but via their Lidl, as this would be our last shop in Portugal. Due North of the city there is a sensible route over the mountains, suitable for all vehicles, and it was a very pleasant drive across into Spain
Before long we arrived at the attractive hilltop town of Puebla de Sanabria, where there’s a convenient Park4night down by the river, looking back up at the town. To get to the town will involve a short stroll along the river, then the bridge, followed by a bit of a hike up a path directly to the castle. At least after that it’ll be a comfortable meander downhill back to our accommodation on wheels.
