SIGHTINGS

Castling around Spain.

On a recent vacation I stopped to enjoy a picnic at a castle in Medellin, in the province of Badajoz, Extramadura, Spain. In Roman times, the castle was called Mattelinum, the birthplace of Hernan Cortez. The 11th-Century church on the right (TOP PHOTO) was built on top of an old Roman temple dedicated to Pluto.
The final photo is of a different castle, built on top of a Roman fort that was built on top of an earlier Moorish fortress. The price of admission at this castle was zero Euros, and there were no other tourists there.
