There are 2 albergues in Terradillos de los Templarios. Los Templarios and Albergue Jacques de Molay, named in remembrance of the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar who was burnt at the stake in front of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris by King Philip IV of France.
We walked with Terry and Geraldine today. After about 3 kilometres we reached the small village of Moratinos with its underground bodegas. They were used for food storage and wine making. They date back 2000 years to the Romans. The soft clay was scooped out and removed through the ventilation shaft. Once exposed to air the clay hardened to a stony finish. There is a fountain next to the Iglesia Parroquial Santo Tomás de Aquino and a rest area here but little else. However it makes the walk more interesting to find little villages and Peregrino food stops.Read more
