We took a really good ground tour of Sos Del Rey Catolicos today.  This photo shows the results of the Decree of Expulsion in 1492 of all Jews from Spain.  On this door in the Jewish quarter the Mezuzah was torn from the stone door sill and replaced with the Crucifix.

Our young guide told us that Catholicism is dying out in Spain.  Most of the church rehabilitations are being carried out with European Union money for historical and tourism reasons.  Some of the masses we have witnessed have more people on the altar than the pews.
