Welcome to the Winter issue of Living Spain. We sent John Lloyd to experience the wonderment of La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone National Park from a hot air balloon. You can see his stunning photography and full report in this issue.
We also take a look at the town of Trujillo in Extremadura, which was home to Pizarro, one of several famous conquisadors who made their fortune in Latin America and brought home their new-found wealth to create beautiful and thriving towns.
Tempted by the sound of the custard apple? We explore the seasons of Spanish fruit and take a look at some of the country's more eccentric fiestas. Tomato fight, anyone?
Little known Trujillo in south-west Spain, just a couple of hours from Madrid, is a magical town where you can eat and live like a Conquistador.
Fruit in Spain is far more seasonal than that which we enjoy here, meaning it's all the more welcome when its time finally comes.
