(visited by Philippe Burtin and Antonella Burtin)

08-May-2018 -- During a short trip in Spain we had to drive from Madrid to Salamanca with a rented car. We choose the southern itinerary running west from Toledo to Plasencia that follows very closely the north 40th latitude line. This allowed us to visit N40 W4, N40 W5 and N40 W6 in the same day.

N40 W4 is located in a field where chickpea was blooming at the time of our visit. So I decided to walk carefully into the field and to stop at 99 meters west of the point, close enough to validate the visit and thus avoiding ripping too much plants.

Of course, the main attraction in the area is the magnificent city of Toledo ! Don’t miss it !
