Zamora's watermills and cathedral
Wednesday 3 October: Winter is approaching in northern Europe, it's time to follow the sun. So, walking boots in backpack, I take the southbound train to the historic town of Zamora, near the Portuguese border. It feels good to be on the move again. Zamora's set on a rocky bluff above the Rio Duero with more Romanesque architecture than you can shake a semicircular arch at. A squat Medieval castle and cathedral overlook historic watermills that jut into the slow flowing river. A pleasant place for a stroll in the October sunshine. Photos of Zamora.
