In this post I’ll write another review about a city in Spain that I visited. This time I’ll talk about Zamora.
Zamora is a city in the northwest of Spain, near the frontier with Portugal. It is crossed by the Duero river and they actually offer boatrides on the river, but sadly they only start those boat trips at the end of March. But there was of course more than just a river in the city. Zamora counts 24 Romanesque style churches, which makes it the city where you can find most churches of that style of all Europe.
We did a walking tour through the city and I think we passed like 15 of them.
On the Internet I read an article about the Holy Week in Zamora. Everyone in the city is celebrating and there are lots of activities during that week. When I visited the city last week, people of all ages were allready practising some songs that they are going to play during the festivities!
I took pictures of some views I liked. On the first picture, you see like a connection between 2 buildings. I can’t really say why, but I really liked this. It connected two buildings, of which one was completely different of the other one. It made me think about the group I was visiting the city with. We are all completely different persons, of all different countries (Belgium (me!), Korea, Japan, United Kingdom, Czech Republic & United States), but even though there are so many differences between us, we still connect, and we had a great time together!
On the second picture you can see the most original mailbox I’ve seen in my life. If there is living a little boy in that house, he is so lucky to have parents that are that original to put a mailbox like that!
On the next picture, I like the fact that the bridge was reflected in the water. That always makes me think of the pictures of cities in travel brochures, but I hadn’t seen that a lot of times for real until now.
The forth pictures show some kind of tree that I call ‘army-trees’. The have the color of camouflaged soldiers who are hiding in the woods. I put the picture in black and white now, but I’m sure that if you would see a tree like that for real, that you would immediately think on the soldiers too! 😉
On the last two pictures you see 2 images that you can find a lot in Spain. I personally love the typical streets that go up or down a bit. It’s typical for this country I guess. I’m not sure but I think that storks are really common in here. I saw some of them in Béjar allready too! (Check out my post about Béjar to know more about that!)
Anyway, I hope you all liked this post. I all wish you a happy further Sunday!
