Do I really know my own country?
That's what I asked myself a year ago ... and the answer surprised me.
Yes, I had been to many locations. I was very familiar with the outer edges of the peninsula, but the interior was a huge black hole pierced here and there by the lights of some city.
So I set out to remedy it.
I bought a van adapted as a home and I went to explore the interior of Spain.
For eighty days I visited villages, castles, natural parks and archaeological sites, talked with people, researched a thousand stories and looked out into a world that was curiously familiar and, at the same time, completely unknown.
This is the map of my trip...
What will you find in this book?
The result is an approach to the history, geography and present day realities of a country which is much larger, richer and more complex than we were ever told. A country that overflows with a rich heritage and an archaeological, historical and cultural wealth, full of amazing nooks and crannies, but also depopulated and lonely.
A deeply beautiful country that is truly worth the effort of exploring in depth, getting lost in its innermost recesses and diving into its extraordinary past.
- Wonderful and unknown places to escape to at any time.
- A journey into the forgotten heart of an immense country.
- An inquisitive appraisal that challenges everything.
- Lots of Spanish history, well told and entertaining.
- The day to day of a trip full of anecdotes and surprises.
Will you come with me on a voyage through this forgotten Spain?
