Alba de Tormes is where Santa Teresa is buried. It is a beautiful town with two unique attractions and unfamiliar destination number 62.

Here you see the traditional homes of the region. The larger door was used as a stable and the smaller door was the entrance to the house.

Today the large “barn” is now a garage/holding area. 0
