41º on Sunday when i took the photos.. One of the pots of geraniums . All were given and hung by the municipality.
I did not want to show you the back part of this most beautiful monestery. There is a long story that goes with it. It is now privately owned and is just been left in ruin.. It was built around 1500's.. it belonged to the church. The church needed money and they sold it. Then the man that bought it went bankrupt and its been decaying ever since. Its such a magnificent entrance of "Manueline" style
The Battle of Arronches an encounter between the Portuguese empire and of the Spanish Empire took place in 1653... Along the way to Spain..you can see little ruined stone towers, where the amunitions were kept. Now fallen and hidden between the olive trees
Arronches is very well known for its black pigs and its fantastic smoked ham hocks.
I couldnt fit any more of Arronches in. But am now reading up about its history.
Part 11.. Badajoz.
