>> May I recommend a hidden gem? Go down from the Pyrenees to Extremadura. It is one of the poorest regions in Spain, but you can find places like Trujillo, Cáceres, the national park of Monfrage, Guadalupe, the roman ruins in Mérida ... >>

Richard, I second Covadongs's idea! We were in this region about 8 yrs ago and loved it all. The small provencial museum in Caceres is wonderful! Also, the Black Madona in Guadalupe is not to be missed! Susie Newton, MA
