There’s absolutely no brush or ground vegetation, so it all seems like a fantastic, enormous hall of columns (the way they say the columns of the Mosque of Córdoba look like a forest) and that makes for easy, long, wonderful walks, especially at night — which is most of the day in wintertime — and with snow.
