Above is the Parador Hostal San Marcos de Leon, a 16th-century former monastery. You might recognize it if you've seen the Martin Sheen movie The Way. Now a hotel, we met a young couple who had spent Saturday night there. Below are examples of what seem to be homes built into the earth, with only the front door area open to light. Many have chimneys protruding from the grass covered roofs. They appear to be lived in...what a contrast!
