Prehistoric Art and Medieval Castles
Our ancestors have left some of the most beautiful cave art imaginable. We will visit the museum of Altamira where the cave art has been replicated perfectly so you will be enthralled as you walk under the roof of art. There is also an exhibition of ancestral art going back to the san art of The Kalahari. There is also a shop and a cafe.
We bring into the roadbook some of the medieval castles and forts that are dotted around the Spanish landscape so that you can immerse yourself in the unique Spanish culture. The Spanish are very proud of their past and the Central Government has ensured that any cultural artifacts are either free or very cheap to visit. You will be able on your last day before the journey home visit the Museum of Human Evolution in Burgos, a mindboggling experience.
The mountainous landscapes of Spain are the perfect habitat for Griffon and Bearded Vultures. At the top of a long loose gravel climb up an escarpment, you will be able to walk to the escarpment edge and look vultures in the eye, only feet away.
We produce a wildlife guide that will help you identify not only the birds but also the mammals and reptiles that you may come across. You will see many deer, possibly the Iberian Ibex and maybe Wolf and Bear. On one of our reconnaissance forays, we came across a Wild Cat.
