It’s a natural fortress. Next, let’s talk about the town itself. When you imagine a Spanish town in your head, you think of narrow cobblestone roads, old señoras praying with their rosaries in beautiful churches, children playing fútbol on the street, the scent of freshly-baked bread, and lovely homes all built one on top of another.
