doorway in Boadilla

As we walked out of Boadilla del Camino, a woman chastised us for walking through town and not stopping to learn more of its history. We went back as she instructed. Indeed, this is where St. Ignatius of Loyola was born. She also told us to look at the fountain and the Rodo de Justicia–the guidebook calls it a Rollo– at least, since the Church was closed and we could not go in. It is all very historical, she insisted. We enjoyed the quiet little town and indeed learned from reading our guidebook that it was at one time a bustling city of 2,000 but now it is down to 200! Becky was intrigued by the doorways and how they use a curtain made of beads, or reed in some cases, outside of the regular door.
