  Astronomers Monument
by balhannah


Just a short drive from Amigos Castle, we came to the Astronomers Monument.
We stopped here, and read the details on how this "folly" was built by filling buckets with cement! It has a Temple of inscriptions in memory of famous Astronomers.
Looks like another eccentric built this!
