Located just outside Madrid. Photos are not permitted of the interior of the palace and his tomb is watched by a security guard.
On the side of the tombs are carved these Latin words from the Holy Writ: "FUIT HOMO MISSUS A DEO CUI NOMEN ERAT IOANNES."
I visited here in 1996! Incredible place....ReplyDelete
Why is the tomb of Don Juan watched over by a security guard? Fear of vandalism by Moslems, perhaps, since he beat the pants off their ancestors at Lepanto?
Boy, do we need a Don Juan today!
