Portrait Of Arrés

In a little hilltop village they gambled for my clothes/I bargained for salvation and they gave me a lethal dose BOB DYLAN Shelter From The Storm

Not far beyond the cairns, and beyond Puente la Reina de Jaca, and further west along the Aragón valley ...


... I came to the little hilltop village of Arrés ...





... with its ruined castle, restored church, barrel-tiled roofs and distinctive Aragonese chimneys ...




I got no salvation in the church, for it was locked as usual; so I gambled that the bar was open, but it was not ...





Instead the view made up for everything ...
