Hi all -- COVID/border/health situation permitting, I (and a friend) will be driving from Madrid to San Sebastián in August. Northbound trip will be on a Monday, southbound/return trip on a Thursday.
I'm looking for recommendations for stops along the way. These don't have to be outstanding/top-tier tourist spots -- mostly it's just nice to have a spot to stretch your legs on a 5-hour drive and it'd be nice if it weren't just at a gas station!
The obvious one is Burgos, so we will likely be stopping in one direction to get some lunch and stroll around town. However, it'd be nice to stop somewhere else in the other direction, so looking for any thoughts on that.
If it's helpful, I like historical sites (especially from the 19th/20th century), scenic views, book/literary-related interests. But for this purpose, even weird "quirky road trip"-type spots would be great.
