Ecija, 2017

We stopped in Ecija briefly in 2010, one of our earliest experiences trying to drive a 6m camper into a medieval warren. After backing up a ways, with crowd assistance, we parked precariously, and I ventured out briefly for a look. En route from Seville to Cordoba in 2017, we stopped again at Ecija, easily found a great parking area, then spent a couple hours exploring the beautiful old town of towers and old buildings. When we were in Ecija in 2010, things looked rather run-down. Clearly there has been a change...

In the beautiful public library, getting a map and some very
helpful advice

Love the patio thing, tiles, grill-work, etc.

At the local historical museum, an educators'
conference is going on

Lecture hall

We both miss our professional colleagues...
some of them

Oh well, back to retirement, traveling, and towers
