Today has been quite a long day. I had to look in my pictures to remember how the day started.
We started our day earlier than usual. We set off to the Altamira Cave at 10am.
Well, it isn't technically the Altamira Cave. It's a NeoCave. The actual cave is extremely endangered because when it was first offered for viewing, people from everywhere came and crowded in the little cave. Because of the temperature change and so much movement, along with people being handsy all over the prehistoric art work, it was in big trouble. So they created an exact replica of the cave and put artifacts in a huge museum. It is really cool.
So back to the explanation.
The Altamira cave is a 18,500 year old cave that was used by the monkey-man creature, Neanderthals and, once they went extinct, man. There are many artifacts that were found in the cave. From tombs and carcasses to tools and clothes.
What is most significant about the caves are the amazing drawings found on the ceiling of the cave. The cave is very short, so it was easy for the people to draw/paint.
We went from there to another city with a big church and many stores and restaurants. The town itself dates back to the Medieval times.
From that city we went to Santamilla del Mar. This city is famous for its amazing architecture. Gaudí designed one of the buildings and another is a famous Gothic style church. The Gaudí house was definitely my favorite because I love sunflowers and that was the theme of the home.
All together it was a long day. But it was really fun and I love the house Gaudí designed. By far my favorite building so far, even though it is kind of of gaudy.
I hope you just laughed because I did.
And I know I usually end my posts with my mustache, or bigote, but this picture is kind of better:
