Day 5 of our fun time on the Camino. On that day, we walked 13 km in the morning. An area that used to be a dreaded section for pilgrims because thieves hid in the woods.
We arrived in Ortega to have our daily picnic. Delicious as always.
We visited the 12th (romanesque )/15th (Gothic) Century San Juan de Ortega church.
We were on the bus after to get to Burgos where we visited the Cathedral with a local guide. It was named an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. We were there on a special day : Corpus Christi. Celebrated 60 days after Easter.
Once again, it was fantastic to see a beautiful building. Our hotel was facing the Cathedral and from the 4th floor. It was a splendid view.
We were on our own that evening ; that means not eating with our group. We decided to walked up to the look-out point and enjoy a drink before dinner.
The yellow line is an indication that we are on the Camino.
Then, we found a place for dinner in the city . We also stopped in another place for churros before going back to our room.
What a nice visit in Burgos.
We had 6 more days on the Camino. We were, at that point, on a roll and walking was just what we wanted to do.
More on this journey in my next post. Thanks for reading.
