Asheville was our second stop on the way down to Great Smoky Mountain. It is the center of southern end of Blue Ridge Parkway at North Carolina and the location of Biltmore Castle. We have been to the area and visited Biltmore Castle some 36 years ago. By the time we got to Asheville, it was already early afternoon. We decided to skip the tour around the countryside and the castle but go to Cúrate to have a late lunch/early dinner.
