Zaragoza was a special homecoming for me since I had lived here as a child.  It’s a medium sized city of about 300,000 located in a dry part of central Western Spain.  We stopped here to get a quick lunch and tour one of the most important churches in all of Spain.

This trip also included a stop in the Rioja wine making region at the Marques d Arviza winery.  It’s a 500+ year old collection of cellars where they store and produce their wine.  Two bottles of it even made it home with us after the trip!
