Time has come to start the journey to Bordeaux so we headed north and found ourselves in the delightful market square in Estremoz.
It is a little town on the Portuguese Spanish border that just happens to be the centre of the marble industry. It shows everywhere as the park benches, statues and even the market square itself are all marble.
The place has a great castle.....built from stone but inside is a fantastic church and keep built from....marble
The keep is now a hotel but if you ask at reception they will let you climb the stairs
