Four nights in a B&B near Segovia. I am taking my wife and another couple to a favorite city during a seventeen day trip to Spain. We will rent a vehicle and drive to Avila one day. What should we see in that direction? I want to go north and east another day. Is Penafiel too far to enjoy after stopping in Cuellar and other small towns? Or should we go south to La Granja de San Ildefonso Palace and/or El Escorial? We will be there Sept. 4-8 and I am hoping there is a local festival in one of the towns on that Saturday. We will be traveling by train throughout Spain.
Thank you for advice.
