Huescar is a town only twenty minutes from us , its beautiful and historic and and has some great view points. Would you believe between 1809 and 1981, Huéscar was at war with Denmark as a result of the Napaleonic wars of Spain where Denmark supported the French Empire. This official declaration of war was forgotten until it was discovered by a local historian in 1981, followed by the signing of a peace treaty on 11 November 1981 by the city mayor and the Ambassador of Denmark. Not a single shot was fired during the 172 years of war, and nobody was killed or injured! Its an extremely peaceful tranquil town now with a great weekly market.
