León - whether walking through as a pilgrim on the Camino, on a bus tour, travelling by train, exploring on your own - this city is sure to excite with its historical wonder. The architecture alone makes this city worth a visit. But we haven't even mentioned the food, festivals, museums and Barrio Húmedo with its tapas and wine! Come visit León.
This fall we picked enough Endrinas or Blackthorn berries to make 5 litres of pacharán. Growing wild around the village of Pozos, they are fairly easy to find.
Cooking with Esmeraldo - Tortilla Española. A family classic, this easy potato omelette is one of our favourite light meals. Here in Pozos we use free range eggs and homegrown potatoes and onions.
In our cooking with Esmeraldo blog series we are featuring summer tapas. Always a favourite with locals, tourists and our guests, ❊pulpo á feira (octopus) is the first to disappear off their plate!
The Episcopal Palace in Astorga is one of only three buildings built outside of Catalonia by modernist master, Antoni Gaudí. Two of our favourite places to visit in Astorga; the Cathedral and the Bishop's Palace.
