Well, Google suggested that I was at the "Caixa" a few weeks ago, but I remember distinctly that I only put my heavy shopping bag down in front of the "Caixa" to have a rest. I do actually have an account with the "Caixa", but I'm not using it these days. The employees at this bank are friendly enough, but the waiting times in the queues are very, very long. This "Caixa" is in support of mostly agricultural endeavours which is why I had opened an account there in the first place. I'm sure it would be a good bank to use if you had some agricultural interests and didn't mind the queues. Also, there is practically no parking available in this area, so you would have to park further away from the center of Pego and walk up.

Ahhhhh! Google doesn't know everything after all! ;) As it so happens I was in Benidoleig a couple of weeks ago as Google suggested, but not to reside in the Casa Rural Vicent de Pura, but for a house warming party with my friends who have recently moved there and it looks as if they are living close to above mentioned Casa Rural. Never mind, we had a brilliant time and they did drive me around in this quaint village with narrow streets in the center and old real stone buildings. There was also a small supermarket, but it was too late to buy something there. Now, Benidoleig is famous for the rather enormous cave there. It is called "cueva de las calaveras" and that means "cave of the sculls". Well, I have visited this cave various times and there is just a small glass box with a few old white bones in there. The cave itself is very impressive, spacious and very big and long. It was used during the wars for storing weapons and at times for people to hide. Interesting history to say the least! So why not book into the Casa Rural Vincent de Pura and explore this quaint village with the enormous caves. Have fun! :)

I have always known this bar by the name Bar Vincent. And the owner, Vincent himself is a very pleasant character and even stops by for a chat if he's got time. I like to take my friends that come to visit from all over the world to this bar, because practically all of them ask for some "typical" Spanish food. No problem! Vincent know to make "Dacsa" to perfection! Dacsa is not a BIG plate, it's just a small, delicious sample of local fare. With a glass of red wine there is no need for lunch anymore, because you are not feeling sooooooo full! The Bar Vincent is situated next to a fairly blank space on Google maps, but actually, where you see a ring going round without a street name, that is the Clinic of Pego. Twice I had to bring a friend down here with serious work accident injuries and they took care of him in the clinic while I waited anxiously for them in the Bar Vincent. Anyway, if you want to impress your friends with unusual local fare, take them to the Bar Vincent, they won't be disappointed.

When we arrived newly in the mountains near Pego to start our small homestead, guess which shop we needed most? Exactly: The hardware store Ferreteria Bolufer. Back then they had a smaller shop near where they are now, but the staff is the same, always helpful - always knowledgeable. You just walk to the end of the shop where there is a big counter. Behind the counter are the guys that know everything and that have everything you need. I do speak Spanish, but those weird things we needed and I hardly knew the words for them in English or in German, well, that's what hands are for! And drawings. Take your drawing to the guys and they'll give you good advice and the tools and bits to make your project easy to do. Ferreteria Bolufer also stocks an impressive range of stoves and heaters plus ecopellets and everything else you might need to crank up the heat in your home. 14 years of friendly and knowledgeable service from the Ferreteria Bolufer - we love them! Maybe I have never said "thank you" in all those years, but here is my chance to write a nice review for them and to recommend them to you if you need tools, DIY bits, stoves and good advice! Thank you everybody at Bolufer!

The Tourist information office in Pego is a pleasant, light building next to the municipal swimming pool and a school for smaller children. As you enter the spacious, airy building, you are greeted by two or three young people who work there. They are very helpful especially if you speak a bit of Spanish. I once went there to ask for a really nice place to show to my German friends and they suggested to visit the Font Salada. What an adventure that was driving through the rice fields, watching the local birds and finally arriving at Font Salada having crossed over an old stone bridge. That is exactly how they described the drive to me and they also gave me a few nice brochures of the area and those are available in Spanish/Valenciano, German and English. And next time I need to find a special place to entertain my friends, I'm sure to enquire in the Tourist Info of Pego again as there are many lovely places to discover here.

An English bar? Well, must be that the owners changed again as I can see nothing particularly English there. I once went there with some German friends and wanted to invite them to a "granizado". Grano = grain. Granizo = hail. Granizado = a softdrink made of crushed ice that comes in many different flavours and many different colours. Generally, most bars offer Granizado with flavours like coffee, lemon and orange. But this bar offers the whole pallete! I asked the waiter which flavours are on offer today and he rushed to bring us the Granizado menu! He was a humourous character and after we had ordered Granizados in yellow, orange, green and lilac, he brought them immediately and we had such a laugh with him! The food is good as far as I have tried it, but then I wouldn't order English food in a Spanish bar, but proper Spanish dishes and they are great here! But the best thing about this bar is that it is situated next to the open space where the "mercadillo" takes place very Thursday. What a vantage point here, if you come early with some friends and get a table before the bar gets full. You can sit and amuse yourself watching the toing and froing around the market and you can take turns visiting the stalls buying what you fancy knowing that when you come back, there is a chair and a good selection of drinks and food waiting for you. And finally, there is a "mercat de terra" opposite this bar every second Saturday of the month where local people sell everything that is REALLY home grown or home made. Again, if you come early, get a table at the Bar Pego, have a drink and a "bocadillo" and enjoy the "mercat de terra".

Actually, there are 2 Mas Y Mas stores in Pego. One is situated next to the post office in the center of town and the other one about 5 minutes walk from the center. It seems to me that the two stores have different owners indeed as their product range differs very much. I prefer the small Mas Y Mas next to the post office because they have a fresh meat counter and a deli counter and the quality of the meat there is the best in town. There is a small range of organic products "hidden" on the top shelf next to the soft drinks and water bottles. Obviously, being a supermarket, they stock all the products you are likely to want to buy, but being a sort of "cosy, little cornershop", the choice is limited and that can be a good thing if one is in a hurry. The big Mas Y Mas has everything and a wide range of choice - at a price. I'm also not impressed by their fruit and veg offer. They pride themselves to have all their fresh produce "totally fresh", but this is not so. Most fruits and vegetables were picked in an unripe state and when they reach the store, they look nice, but are mostly hard and "sour" or not the full flavour one would expect, especially the tomatoes. They are hard and have no taste. I also bought a pineapple recently, it was so acidic, it burnt my mouth! I had to throw it out. Never mind, there are two good green grocer's in the center of town, so I go to buy fruit and veg with them and buy at Mas Y Mas what nobody else seems to store. Marmite, brilliant BBQ sauce, Sweet & Sour Chili sauce, yes, Mas Y Mas has the biggest pallette of sauces and they are all very nice. As there is simply not enough parking in the roads around the Mas Y Mas stores, the bigger Mas Y Mas has an ample underground carpark which is free. The staff is always exceptionally friendly and helpful and there are hardly any queues at the checkout. All in all, I think it's a good shopping experience at both Mas Y Mas stores. Note: Most people who come to Pego for the first time, get rather confused and frustrated because of all those one way streets. But, (as my husband explained to me patiently) there is a system to the madness. Remember: If you have to go in one direction on the present road, the NEXT PARALLEL road goes in opposite direction AND it's made to be accessible from where you are. P.S.: The above note will probably only make sense to you if you are actually driving in Pego at this very moment! ;)
