Wonderful!! Was the wall built around the tree, or did the tree burst through the wall?

I think the tree was there first and the waller built up to it. The wall is quite old, though.

I also think the tree was first, I guess it could be 400 years old... I know one here in Galicia considered one of the oldest trees in the area and it is even bigger than this one (this is 500) Thanks for sharing!!
