Jorge our guide was quite good. Pace was great since it was getting hotter each minute. Liked his giving us history and then going to both the Vente de Dulce convent of cloistered nuns who sell cookies Never would have found it and also to a tour of Casa Botin the oldest operating restaurant in Spain from early 18th century. Ending at the royal palce was icing on the cake. The decorations rivaled Versailles. Well worth it. th
