  1. Andrew is the photos from Salamanca, Castilla y Leon an astronaut? Now that’s not something you see everyday:)


    • The Cathedral underwent restoration work in 1992 and it is a generally a tradition of cathedral builders and restorers to add details or new carvings to the façade as a sort of signature. In this case the Cathedral authorities gave the go-ahead to add some more modern images including the asrtonaut. Despite there being clear documentation of the astronaut being a recent addition, the spaceman has already fuelled wild ideas of ancient space travel, and medieval alien interventions. We found the astronaut but not the other recently added images of a dragon eating ice cream, a lynx, a bull, and a crayfish.


  2. Er, change your province for Sevilla.


  3. Yes, please tell us more about that image from Salamanca.



  4. The astronaut stood out for me as well. I scratched my head wondering what it had to do with all the pictures of cathedrals. I see you’ve explained to Sue already. Interesting.


  5. These are fantastic – I need to do more travelling in Spain!

    • Thanks for the link, some wonderful pictures there! I like the bullfight picture, was it raining?
      I have used my old photographs and sites like Google Earth and Wiki to drag up memories of old holidays and journeys even though I didn’t take notes at the time.
