    Short day to Vitoria

    June 10, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    I slept in till 7, made a coffee with my spiffy electric coil, and by 7:45 or so we were ambling our way to Vitoria, capital of the Basque Country.

    We passed a turn-off for a 2 km detour to the region’s “jewel of Romanesque” but since it is Monday and the church is closed, I passed on the chance to see the outside.

    We did go through a little town with a church with a Romanesque and doorway. Closed too, of course.

    The city of Vitoria has a beautiful downtown medieval core (was a walled city). Since the albergue didn’t open for almost two hours, we opted for a cheap pension in the old quarter. It’s fine.

    Currently icing my knee. Nothing to do before the 5 pm Cathedral tour except eat lunch, so I will rest up for a while now.

    Sounds like an afternoon resting your knee is a good plan.
