Camino de Santiago (Spain)-part 5

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.

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.
