Reaching back, way back, into our ancestral beginnings, we viewed the cave art of bison, deer, horses, and boars of the Magdalenians of 14,000 years ago in the nuevo-cave of Altimira near Santillana del Mar, Spain. The attached museum was extremely extensive with videos, found artifacts, and information about the life of early Cro-Magnon humans.
We stayed at a wonderful little hotel in which sheep and donkeys gamboled in the pasture next to us, and furniture was made on the ground level below our room on the edge of the village. Bowers of geraniums and begonias festooned the tiny courtyard. Two nights in the same hotel run by Octavio and Milagra was muy bien.
