Excellent ladies and gents showers and toilets. Small well equipped kitchen. Dining and reception areas. Open all year and the warden (hospitalero) lives opposite.

Half were Spanish and 12 other nationalities were registered.

And this in a land where rain, at any time of year, is in overabundan supply. Life is full of paradox.
