And now Madrigal de las Altas Torres, in the province of Ávila. The birthplace of the greatest Queen Spain ever had, Isabelle of Castille. She unified the country, ended the reconquering of the Iberian peninsula and was also the one that let Cristopher Columbus all he needed to travel to the Indies. That was the beguining of the Spanish Empire and the reason the Spanish Language and Culture spread in four continens.

Yes Charlie, many of those houses are vacant or abandonned. Many serve as second residences to spend a few days during summer or other small holidays. Most of the Spanish population lived two or three generations ago in villages like these ones so those properties still belong to the families. Most of the people moved to cities so the population in the rural areas are now five or six times less what it was 60 years ago. The families had to buy an expensive flat so the money had to go to the mortage and NOT to renovate a house with little possibilities to be sold and expensive to mantain. They are now the link with tradition and that fashion is becoming again liitle by little more popular: grow your own vegetables, produce your own wine, have free range chickens... I am myself renovating a rural house and already doing all that and is a wonderfull hobby. But still, it will take many years before many treasures come again to life in good condition. Anyway, they retain the charm

wow, great looking villages. as I'm looking at your photos, I'm imagining the people that lived in those houses,
that walked in those cobbled-stoned roads and the kind of life they had since these villages were establised and populated.
thank you for a great photo tour.
