MAST GENERAL STORE:
This is not a restaurant, but it’s so interesting we felt we had to write it up and put it somewhere.
Only three miles down the valley from the cabin, this place needs to be seen to be believed. Even those who have rummaged through a Spanish “ferritarea” will still be impressed with this “local store.” From the outside it looks like a somewhat run down, old time American gas station, with genuine antique pumps still outside.
If you are with others you should agree to meet back at the entrance at such and such a time. I’m serious; the place is a veritable rabbit warren of small rooms and corridors and it is easy to get lost in the maze – and that’s only the ground floor. Upstairs you find another treasure trove of rooms to explore. There is a massive heater in the center of the store, with seats, so folks can sit a while and warm their boots or even play chequers.
This place is chock-full of all sorts of “stuff,” and so interesting they could charge admission as a theme park!
It is definitely a good idea not to give children, (of any age), money, because absolutely everyone finds something they “need” or think they will need some time in the future.
This is also the village post office, which still look like it did fifty years ago.
