Castile had made little progress since the intrepid lady foreigners of the 1900th century visited it. Their successors, new travellers between 1935 and XNUMX, will certify the situation in this region: wastelands, ruins, muddy or dusty roads occupied by donkeys and sheep flooding the fields, and the misery in the helmets of the towns with pigs and goats at ease here and there. The indolence of its inhabitants, who at the foot of the bars of their churches and among the bowls of chickpeas on holidays display a proud character does not cease to amaze these women who visit and describe them.

Travel book or, rather, notebook with sketches of the places that caught the plastic attention of Fry, one of the founders of The Bloomsbury Groupe, together with Virginia Woolf, who would write her biography in 1940. 

When writing it, he thought of sensations alone, that unique moment, the 'aesthetic moment', the intuitive perception of beauty, the reason why Fry travelled. And he captured the Spanish essence with greater depth than Woolf, far from romanticism, with sharpness and irony.
