Day 32. Carrión to Ledigos, Camino.September 5, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C
The journey today is the most difficult of the Meseta. It starts with 18km of no shade and no villages. We have to carry water and food with us.
Terry and Geraldine from Ireland helped us get accommodation today. We tried last night but our Vodafone sims were not working. We were worried about beds for tonight because Carrión was full last night. We got 2 beds in a dorm for Terradillos using Terry Murphy’s phone.
We left Carrión de los Condes by crossing the 16th century bridge and passing the 10th century Benedictine Monasterio de San Zoilo. This had originally been built as a convent but was used by the royal family of Castilla y Leon as their court.
We found a little pop up cafe called the Oasis at the halfway mark. We took a break but it was not very hygienic. We just bought bananas.
We had lunch in a small village Calzadilla de la Cueza with Terry and Geraldine where we also met Yin.Read more
