Day 12 – Side trip to Monasteries (Suso)

Last post was getting a little long. In the late afternoon we took a bus up to the Suso Monastery. No photos were allowed inside but I did get a picture of the tombs of the 7 Infantes de Lara who were beheaded by their uncle in a fight over succession. The bodies are here the heads are elsewhere.
