Iznájar Castle

Iznájar, Spain

Castillo de Iznájar is an 8th-century castle perched on the high ridge. It has a triangular design, truncated on the northeast side, with its longest side facing south, and a large central space. It is surrounded by a stretch of wall with flanking towers at the southeast and southwest corners. The east side is closed by a rectangular building, which is attached to the west with a pentagonal tower at the bow, and another tower in the east. Early access to the castle is believed to have been from the east side through a building attached to the primitive rectangular tower.

Had an emergency on 20 01 2023 at cc 7.00 p.m. To say the Ambulance staff were 100000% excellent is putting it mildly. They are truly Angels. The Ambulance Medics were so efficient and caring and treated the very distressed patient at his home and stayed for a while to make sure everything was okay!! Well, top marks to these people. James's Hospital may have its problems but came up trumps (again) for me and my family last night. Thank you St. James's Hospital, the wonderful Ambulance staff and the Emergency people to include the 999 staff member who took my call. Amazing people doing an excellent and tough job. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and God bless you. Anna & Family.

An absolute pleasure at the lipids clinic today. Such nice helpful and friendly staff. I did not feel any stress at all and usually I would while attending other hospitals appointments. Consultation, bloods and tests conducted in just over an hour. Pity I had to travel so far but it was worth it so much better than sitting in waiting areas for hours. Thanks for everything and keep up the great work guys.

Dropped my mam to A&E Monday morning and from start to finish the care was 5 star. The staff from nurses, doctors, porters, catering staff etc looked after her and gave her plenty to smile about. She said the cleanliness and staff in St John's ward was incredible. Home safe and recovering. Feeling grateful. Thank you!

I arrived almost an hour early after five hours of traveling to get there and was seen immediately by the friendliest staff I have ever known. They went out of their way to make sure that I was seen too, to get a bus home that would get me to my nearest big town so I could get the last connected bus to my home town thus saving me €60 in taxi fares. The staff are a credit to both the patients and the directors of the hospital. Greatest of thanks to you all, your amazing.

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
