The legend of Santiago appearing from the clouds on a large white horse was written centuries after the supposed battle of Clavijo took place.
Even though it is a legend, the castle perched on the pinacle of a rocky outcrop above the village about 18 km south of Logroño is well worth a visit.
The café bar was closed so we went back to Logrono for lunch. We decided to return to the restaurant where we had dinner the nigh before with a lovely woman serving our meal. The woman behind the bar today was grumpy, impatient and quite rude. I suggested that she didn't want to work today but had drawn the short straw and took her frustrations out on anyone who dared to walk in and ask to have a meal.
