By the time we reached Astorga, I was beginning to grow exceedingly tired of museums. However, when the name of the museum is "The Museum of Chocolate"; how could anyone refuse? Everyone's spirit perked at the thought of chocolate and we marched with determination and glutinous desire.
We arrived at the museum, which was slightly disappointing in size. There was not much to see, only two floors in a tiny building filled with old machines out of production and vintage chocolate signs. There was a video of the artisanal process of chocolate production. It's a lot more work than I realized. It's also even more tantalizing than I thought. How the workers remain skinny is beyond me.
After trying various samples, we left the chocolate museum and visited the facade of the palace designed, once again, by Gaudí. I seriously feel shamed. He basically built every grand architectural design in Spain and, me? Well, let's just say I spend far too much time on social media and Netflix. The palace was beautiful, but sadly we couldn't enter without paying a fee. We returned to our bus for the final stop in our trip: León.
