Small town Fuendetodos — Goya's native land was one of the planned places of visiting in Spain. The small town very remarkable.

Fuendetodos, entrance to town
Entrance to town. Directly at the rate — Church of the Assumption of the Mother of God (spanish: Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción). As the medieval town respecting, Fuendetodos is at hill top, and at the dominating height there is a main temple. That is surprising, this structure of a XVIII-th century, not such old. In Civil war it was destroyed and then restore.

One of the central streets of Fuendetodos. In town stone houses and such remarkable small streets. Each house almost at each window has a balcony but since it is not enough a place, balconies such symbolical. But necessarily shod!

Around two o'clock in the afternoon I meet only one passer-by and a cat. Both have looked at me with suspicion. At all the others — siesta, town was empty.
