"A quiet town..."
Looking for a day trip to somewhere different out of Madrid, we took the train to Guadalajara to see what it has to offer.
An hour later, we arrived and took a bus into the centre for a wander. The journey was hardly picturesque - this town was really quite devastated from the Spanish Civil War, and it feels a little like time had stopped in places... however, we had arrived at siesta time and all the people we encountered were friendly and helpful along the way.
Possibly the highlight of the town, the Palacio del Infantado is a lovely work of architecture, within which exhibitions are held. Unfortunately on the day we visited there were obras - building works - outside blocking the entrance, and so we could not see inside.
However, conveniently located opposite is the tourist office, where I went to consult for maps and find out the popular local sweet delicacies. The enthusiastic lady there advised me to try out bizcochos borrachos, and so I set off on a mission of discovery....
