Day 33c. Calzadilla de los HermanillosSeptember 6 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C
We left Sahagún through the old town passing through the Arco de San Benito and crossing the Rio Cea using the Puente de Canto, a bridge built by Alfonso VI in 1085.
After 4 kms we reached Calzada del Coto. Here the route split into two, one called the Real Camino Francés and the other la Calzada de los Peregrinos. It is another 18 kms to the village of Reliegos where the two routes converge.
We decided to do the extra 12km to Calzadilla and stay in the same Albergue as the Murphys. Seemed like a big mistake as we trudged along the old Roman Road which was completely covered in gravel and thick dust. 12 km is a long long way after already going 13km.
But we were so glad we did. It was great accommodation with really friendly and happy hosts and fun Peregrino friends. We are now a day ahead and will finish the 250km in 9 days instead of 10.
Fabulous dinner with French couple Luke and Lydie from La Rochelle, Irish couple Terry and Geraldine from Belfast, American Jane from Los Angeles (she always thought she had a simple short name until Australians said it with 3 syllables), and Taiwanese Yin.Read more
