Do you know this location?
There is a good clue just to the left of the taverns. Look carefully and you can see a huge aqueduct crossing the street in this photograph. This is the famous Roman aqueduct at Segovia, Spain. While everyone was busy looking at the aqueduct, I was checking out the weather vanes on top of the buildings nearby. I found two above a tavern. I loved the little pig stumbling away from the pitcher (jarra) of wine! Even the ubiquitous weathercock is unusual compared to American weather vanes of roosters. Did you notice that neither weather vane has the cardinal points? Anytime I can get a "two for one" weather vane photo, it's a lucky day!
