Day 15: of this wonderful journey through the north of Spain
- Written by Jose Sueiro
Day 15 of this wonderful journey through the north of Spain in the beautiful little village of Torrecillas, in the Cameros region of La Rioja nestled between jagged peaks & the 'Iregua' -a gurgling mountain stream. Staying in the quaint bed & breakfast; Villa Liquidambar w/my friend José Joaquín Sanz García.
Travelled up & over the mountains to the next valley & ate lunch at 'Viniegras de Abajo'. The menu, a typical red beans a-la-Riojana w/chorizo, bacon fat, 'piquillo' peppers & a delightful carafe of local red wine and a second plate of veal meatballs w/an orange sauce all served by the delightful women at Casa Irene.
Next stop the Marques de Riscal Hotel.
