Day 16: my first visit to the famous Gehry designed, Marques de Riscal hotel.

August 25, 2021 by Jose Sueiro

Day 16 on the road in northern Spain, my first visit to the famous Gehry designed, Marques de Riscal hotel.

Elaborate, other worldly & ethereal, it is elegant & expensive. We sat on the patio. I sipped a Riscal gran reserva. My friends José Joaquín Sanz García & Paloma Dominguez Diaz & I took a picture w/the town in the background. We also went to the mouth of the bodega & got a good long view of the entrance.

Not easy, yet GALA has done it with care and caution under safe conditions and, remarkably, with a delightfully fresh comedy, a welcome antidote to our gloomy, lugubrious times.
