We have a few interesting ones, this one must have been dedicated to Marilyn Monroe, La Rubia. 

and

Villaciervos and 2 km away Villaciervitos (probably where they had their young)
Villabuena (where the good people live)
Matanza de Soria (need to find the history on this one)
I like this one, Yelo.  Not such a cold place.

In May we are moving to the village where my mother is from, 3km down the road.  Its called Villar del Ala, and it is literally the village on the wings of the Valley.

Greetings All,
Lisa posted some stuff on casas de teito with a link to a page by someone in
Cacabelos - which is up in Dave's neck of the w. in El Bierzo de la provincia de León...

Maybe it was originally inhabited by rattlesnakes and immigrants from Andalusia ... :dancing:
