We visited here on a Friday morning, and were lucky to get a parking spot at the entrance of the town. We realised when we got to the church that this was because we'd arrived just as a service was about to start, so couldn't...More

Staying in Tafala we visited Olite, the Bardenas Reales and the tiny village of Ujué, considered one of Spain's most beautiful villages. Perched on a high hill overlooking the barren landscape this hamlet of around 150 souls, mostly old people, is worth driving the 15...More
