Morella, a castle with a village

It was the afternoon of a hot day in early September in Peníscola, we had two Orxates in front of the beach and had a rest while recovering from the heavy humid environment. The day was getting to an end but before we still had to drive eighty kilometres through mountain roads, from the mediterranean coast to one thousand metres high. We were getting closer to Morella when the sky got suddenly completely dark.
