Christmas in Extremadura, Spain

We are spending Christmas in the Sierra de Gredos region, 2 hours west of Madrid, where we have rented a cute little cottage. It is a great location for hiking in the Gredos mountains, birdwatching in Monfragüe national park and visiting interesting historic towns like Ávila and Cáceres. Apart from thick fog the first day, we have been lucky with the weather, bright and sunny every day so far, so it is a nice break from the winter darkness in Tromsø.
