More Moorish / Más Morisco

VIEWS OF THE remnants of the 12th-century Moorish castle and walls of Casares. One photo of the 18th-century Church of the Incarnation just below the Arab ruins. And, finally, San Geraldo who, after our big lunch, was too full to climb all the way up the hill to see it all.
NOTE: I gave incorrect information in an earlier post. The original name of Casares in Arabic was al-Casr, meaning fortress or castle. So, it wasn't named for Julius Caesar.

VISTOS DE LOS restos del castillo morisco del siglo XII y las murallas de Casares. Una foto de la Iglesia de la Encarnación del siglo XVIII justo debajo de las ruinas árabes. Y, finalmente, San Geraldo quien, después de nuestro gran almuerzo, estaba demasiado lleno para subir la colina.
NOTA: Proporcioné información incorrecta en una entrada anterior. El nombre original de Casares en árabe era al-Casr, que significa fortaleza o castillo. Por lo tanto, no recibió el nombre de Julio Cesár.







NOT TOO FULL FOR AN ECLAIR FOR THE DRIVE HOME.
¡NO DEMASIADO LLENO PARA UN PETISÚ ANTES DE CONDUCIR A CASA!

  1. After touring a ruin, one must have an eclair for the arduous journey home.

  2. I just love San Geraldo and don't even know him. Anyone who loves éclairs is alright in my book. I'm am enjoying this series. In the second picture, on the tunnel walkway, I love what looks like a little tree growing on top. So old......these places are cool to see.

  3. Fascinating to see the ruins.
    Mr. G needs to smile in the next shot; he has a lovely smile.

      I like his smile, too, but not when he's got a mouthful of eclair.

      That's what Jerry doesn't like about me. I DO get too full for an eclair.

  6. What is it about ruins that attract lots of people?!
    Good to see SG has his priorities straight.

      For me, the idea that these were built nearly 1,000 years ago. Wow. San Geraldo might need to work on his priorities.

  7. San Geraldo is a man after my own heart and a good eclair.

    Cool photos - looks a bit like sites I saw in Greece.

      Oh, you and Jerry would get along so well. He always points to "pockets" in his abdomen that still have room for something.

  9. No doubt watching you climb was an exhausting experience and sustenance was required.
