Every-time I go to Spain, I am stunned by the quality and the quantity of bolted limestone. Whether you go to Siurana or Rodellar, there is usually a common theme - an old town, tucked away in a spectacular valley with miles of orange rock stretching in all direction. This time we went to Chulilla - a medieval town with a buzzing climbing scene and we even got to stay in a house build centuries ago.
