    I remember seeing this great photograph last time around.
    For some reason, my atlas has "La Guardia" down as "A Garda".

    Hope you are on commission from the Spanish tourist agency. You certainly make me want to visit Spain again.

    As to the name being listed as "A Garda" it is because that is the name in the Galitian language, but in spanish/castilian its La Guardia, your Atlas has the native name.
    Galitian is the language native to this region of Spain (Galicia, from the name the roman empire gave it, Gallaecia, becuase of its celtic backround who settled here in 2000AD, the galiain) its the earliest written latin language along with Italian and evolved from latin at the same time as Castillian did around the turn of the first millenia in the Iberian peninsila. Later when the diverse kindgdoms of the peninsula were united to form the Kingdom of Spain in the 16 century by the Catholic Kings, castillian became the common language of the whole territory. Galitian is co-oficial language here with spanish/castillian, and everybody is bilingual. Galitian is spoken more in the rural areas, and spanish more in the cities.


    Here is a shot were you can kind of make out the fortress in the island in the middle of the river.

    Re: Fishing village, another round of scenic photos

    Outstanding Carlos! I gotta get my butt to Spain!

    Re: Fishing village, another round of scenic photos

    This picture is simply beatiful!
    How many minutes did you have to walk to get to the higher vantage point to take this picture? You must not have your kids or wife with you or else they would never wait

    Re: Fishing village, another round of scenic photos

    Thank you guys

    @MrBonus, if you want a wallpaper size one just send me a PM with your email, I'll be happy to send it to you.

    @Fred 993C4S, only 3 minutes walk but I was alone on a "fun" drive

    Re: Fishing village, another round of scenic photos

    Soooo... Carlos, how's the employment situation there?

    Thanks for the "background story", Carlos. I thought it would be something along those lines, but didn't anticipate you'd give so much detail. Muchos gracias for your trouble.

    Have toured the Basque region, Catelonia, and the Pyrenees many years ago by Porsche (924), and Portugal by rental car in the recent past, but I now know that my next trip to the Iberian Peninsula will have to be to Galicia, and preferably in a 911.

    Re: Fishing village, another round of scenic photos

    Well, you have a friend in Galicia Fritz if you ever pass by

    Re: Fishing village, another round of scenic photos

    Galicia is in Poland

    Re: Fishing village, another round of scenic photos

    beautiful car carlos....congrats!!

    Re: Fishing village, another round of scenic photos

    Carlos,

    Thanks for the extraordinary photos. You are an artist w/ a camera. My Blk/Blk S arrives next week. I am planning on posting photo's from Northern California but I fear I can't match your handiwork with a camera.

    Re: Fishing village, another round of scenic photos

    Outstanding pictures indeed. Thanks
