Then we had to find the hotel-a couple of stops on the underground, up the Gran Vía and there it was: Hotel Senator.
It was very nice and comfortable. Having dropped off our bag we headed off to our first destination, El Museo del Romanticismo. Through less salubrious areas, it took us a while to find.
When that was over we ate. in the afternoon we went to an exhibition of the Dutch artist Escher. It was very expensive compared to the national museums.

On Saturday we went to the Archaeological Museum. It was really well arranged; all the national stuff in chronological order from pre-history to the latest. From bones and stones to amazing and exquisite jewellery. We saw the famous Dama de Elche, whose real purpose they don't know. surprisingly, she wasn't absolutely unique. The have one full-body lady and another bust, but they are not quite as elegant as this one.
That was just about it. We were tired and footsore by the time we got to the station and took the Ave back to Zaragoza.
