Montemayor del Río Castle

Montemayor del Río, Spain

Montemayor del Río Castle probably doesn't date back to before the 15th century, and has more the character of a palace than of a strength. It has two existing enclosures. From the outer one only the entrance, flanked by two turrets, remains. The inner has an irregular groundplan, adapted to the outline of the land it was build on.

In the interior two floor levels can still be traced which were arranged around a central patio. In the left wall a large chimney is conserved, evidence of habitation.

A very nice site. Good food. The jeta is I think one of the best I've ever tried. The detail of the appetizer before the starters is a good point. Well attended, friendly and pleasant staff. As a suggestion, I would change the presentation of the sugars since the box is large for the content that it is. recommendable

Wieskirche

The Pilgrimage Church of Wies (Wieskirche) is an oval rococo church, designed in the late 1740s by Dominikus Zimmermann. It is located in the foothills of the Alps in the municipality of Steingaden.

The sanctuary of Wies is a pilgrimage church extraordinarily well-preserved in the beautiful setting of an Alpine valley, and is a perfect masterpiece of Rococo art and creative genius, as well as an exceptional testimony to a civilization that has disappeared.

The hamlet of Wies, in 1738, is said to have been the setting of a miracle in which tears were seen on a simple wooden figure of Christ mounted on a column that was no longer venerated by the Premonstratensian monks of the Abbey. A wooden chapel constructed in the fields housed the miraculous statue for some time. However, pilgrims from Germany, Austria, Bohemia, and even Italy became so numerous that the Abbot of the Premonstratensians of Steingaden decided to construct a splendid sanctuary.
