Christmas at the Pedrera

It's right on our doorstep. We can walk there and leave the car at home. Jose is more than keen to make us welcome. Where better to enjoy a bit of festive cheer.

Christmas Eve will be a special night up at the Albergue with a good party atmosphere guaranteed.

Jose tells us that the restaurant will be open Christmas Day - very handy if you burn the turkey and need somewhere to eat fast.

The big night though is Nochevieja (New Year's Eve) when Jose has planned a special meal at a cost of 40€ per head. There only a few places left so if you fancy it, you need to get up there sharpish to reserve a place.

1st course: a seafood salad
2nd course: peppers stuffed with ham and fungi
3rd course: salmon and esparagus
4th course: a choice of baked sea bass or fillet steak with a mushroom sauce
5th course: strawberry tart and profiteroles - Christmas sweets

a half bottle of red or white wine per person

Finally a glass of sparkling wine with the traditional 12 grapes that you eat on each chime of the clock at midnight for good luck
