A day trip to Sagunto

To make the most of a lovely day, we jumped on a train and headed up the coast to Sagunto.  

It's a cute little town, with a castle at the top of the hill to explore and a Roman theatre as well.  The older part of town was quite pretty, but steep.  We're not used to hills, living in Valencia!  Good job I've been working out recently.

The name of this ceramics shop made my day.  We actually made some purchases, which you'll see in a minute.

Finally we hit the top of the hill and explored the castle.  It's far bigger than the castle in Xativa, but more of a ruin. 




After a spot of tapas and a bocadillo (sandwich) for lunch, we headed back up the hill to find the theatre.  Despite dating back to Roman occupation, it's been restored and looks like a library or something from the front.  A bit disappointing really.

A few details remain, but generally, it's a bit disapppinting. 

It was lovely to be out wandering around somewhere new in the sunshine.  And as I said, we bought souvenirs which definitely makes it a proper day trip.  I was very taken by the ceramics and decided to get a new salad bowl.  Since I'm eating lots of stuff, I should probably have a nice bowl to serve it out of. 

And I also picked up a hand painted fan for those warm summer months which are quickly approaching.  

We're home now and chilling out before we head out for dinner at 10pm. Have a great Saturday night!
