Letter “D”: León at Dusk

This week, Frizztext challenge is letter “D”…
I am a bit late, because the weather has been very bad, but today I went out to the capital with C. and both dogs…And we arrived to this square: “Plaza del Grano” just at Dusk

Plaza del Grano, León, Spain

Plaza del Grano, León, SpainThis is probably the oldest square in León, part of the “Camino de Santiago”, and the ground is paved with stones….

It was working as a market square for many centuries and, even, as an “arena” or “plaza de toros” in the XVII century…

The church is called “Santa María del Camino”, and it is from the XI century…

The houses with wood arcades you can see on your right are from the XVI century, while the fountain on the front is from the XVIII: it simbolizes the two rivers of León: the “Torío” and the “Bernesga”…

This square was also used as a place for execution in the old days…

If once if your life you try to follow the “Camino”, and you happen to be in León, do not forget this place..

….Especially at dusk….
