    Yes, I know what you mean by “patria”

    It’s usually on Guardia Civil buildings isn’t it? Unsavoury history there. The cafe looks great – they don’t build’em like that anymore.

    I’ve always struggled to like San Telmo despite the pretty cafe. The church used to be on the seafront before they reclaimed the land in front.
