As we keep moving across northwest Spain, it’s impossible not to be awestruck by cathedrals, castles, and palaces. But some of the most surprising — and often moving — art is right in the streets. These 14th century stone carvings on an old neighborhood fountain in Pontevedra in Galicia are a case in point, with Adam and Eve staring across the centuries as Eve plucks yet another fruit from the Tree of Knowledge.
