    A slog into Lugo. Hot. Blisters. No water, and even worse, no coffee! Was so glad to crawl into town. Had a personalised tour of the cathedral by a very earnest young nun - Lugo is a pilgrimage site because”the blessed Host is always present in the Cathedral”. What I find amazing is the Roman roots of Lugo, founded by the successor of Julius Caesar and the most remarkable Roman walls, still standing and encircling the inner city. We lucked out with a great 3 bedroom apartment, nicely situated right over a fabulous pastry shop/cafe, and within easy walking distance of the main tapas area. We ate well!Read more

    Sounds like Spring to me. All weathers across three days. Take care of yourself and your blisters. Enjoying your posts. Home yesterday, back to school today.

    St-Jacques-de-Compostelle -Lugo

    May 21, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Après avoir dit au revoir à mes amies du Minnesota au terminus d’autobus, nous nous sommes promis de se revoir bientôt.
    Pour terminer le voyage, je suis venue visiter Alba dans sa ville natale Lugo. Je l’ai rencontré à Portomarín. A mes yeux, elle n’a qu’un seul défaut: elle habite en Espagne. Léger détail. Je pense que c’est réciproque. Comme par hasard, son ami est arrivé 2heures en retard. J’étais bien choqué😂😂😂Read more

    O Cádavo - Lugo

    October 4, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    Nach langer Zeit mal wieder die 30km-Marke erreicht, nach einem gefühlt ewigen Marsch durchs Hinterland. Geisterstädte, verwunschene Wälder und winzige Höfe mit 3 Kühen im Garten. Es ist eine ganz andere Welt als der Camino entlang der sehr touristischen Küste.
    Lugo ist bisher die einzig größere Stadt entlang der Route, so dass wir hier einen Pausentag eingeplant haben. Wie es der Zufall (?) will, startete heute die größte Fiesta Galiziens zu Ehren von San Froilan, so dass wir auch noch in den Genuss von Livemusik und jeder Menge buntem Treiben auf den Straßen kamen.

    Was ist das ? Wandern und dann noch Kalorienbomben ? Genieße sie, damit du wieder zu Kräften kommst und Gewicht machst. Papa

    Past the wall

    September 25, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Today's KM's - 29.9kms
    Total KM's - 462.8kms
    Total blisters - 8

    A leisurely stroll today to Lugo. Mostly walking through gently rolling hills and forests. The day started in the dark and with thick fog until about 9:00. Only a little bit of road walking, to keep us on our toes, as logging trucks thundered by. The main achievement today occurred as we passed under the walls of Lugo and now have less than 100kms to go to Santiago.

    Lugo seems to be a relaxed place, with lots of bars and restaurants. The most impressive feature though is the Roman wall which circles the whole part of the old centre. The wall is 7m's wide, had 85 towers and 10 gates. With the way in and out of Lugo for pilgrims through 2 of those gates.

    We have some time to explore Lugo as we wait for the crazy Spanish dinner time of at least 7:30 (most don't open till 9pm). This doesn't really suit pilgrims who have been walking since 7am and are sleep deprived due to sleeping with snoring strangers. Special treat tonight though, our bunk beds are deluxe and include a privacy blind. Too bad they won't block out the snorers 😴

    Good that you spent some time at a Roman Wall town, a UNESCO site. 👍

    Die letzten 100...

    May 22, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Castroverde - Lugo 22km

    Morgens noch im Nebel gestartet, wurde es heute mittag richtig warm. Anfangs durch grüne Wälder, führte uns der Weg später auch über Teer und Schotterpisten. Gegen 3 hatten wir dann Lugo erreicht. Ab hier sind es noch 100km. Ab morgen kommen dann leider die "Tourigrinos" (Menschen, die nur die letzten 100 gehen, um die Compostela zu bekommen) hinzu.Read more

    We've a choice of routes today. Not sure yet what we'll do.Read more

    October 24, 2016 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    Today, I'm not a pilgrim but a tourist in the capital of Galcia, Lugo. I've become so good at being a pilgrim that I nearly forgot how lousy I am at being a solo tourist. I'm feeling a little lost and out of place amongst all these people who are just going about their day. I ask about a route variation in the camino interpretation centre, but am turned away as it's not the real camino and therefore not part of their scope...
    The students at the table next to me are quizzing each other on German words and grammar. It makes me smile. I just read an article on how repetition is far from the most effective way to learn, but this may not be the time to tell them.
    Feeling out of place here makes me question what is my place in this world and it makes me miss my loved ones. I'm a doer, a problem solver, not a quiet observer and I feel such a strong need to add some value to this world again.
    I stumble upon a fellow pilgrim asks me for help on deciding what to do the next days. I use the knowledge I gained on route variations, onward walks and busses from Santiago and I leave him satisfied with a number of alternatives to choose from. And I... am happy again cause I was able to add some value.
    The day ends with a reunion with another peregrina. We share food, a glass of red wine and stories about love, work, travel and life after the camino. We agree that the tougher days like today and at times being uneasy is good for reflection and learning. It's these days that make us grow.

    October 7, 2016 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Just arrived in Lugo after a 30km walk from O Cadavo. It was long, but not particularly difficult and mostly on country roads or dirt tracks.

    I was expecting a long hard slog into the city, but it was actually quite a pleasant entry.

    Looking forward to a hot shower before exploring. Lugo seems to be a lovely city.

    August 30, 2017 in Spain ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    First things to note is that Ady has completed Tsuguru swim, in Japan, congratulations to him and suppose crew on job well done.

    So this is Lugo 78km from Ribadeo per guidebook book but for some reason it took the bus 2.5hours to get here, the Roman wall, Unesco listed, around the old town is complete and measures 2. 5km. Inside the walls are both old and new buildings one of the old is the Church of St Maria photo 1+2 also Unesco mentioned and seems to consist of lots of little chapels/shrines on edge photo3 and shiney main section Photo4. Walls photo5 and roof top with very dodgy looking slates photo. None of it looks great as it has been raining all day. We are now a bit damp, well my feet are soaked the rest of me is damp so a nice hot chocolate to kill some time till bus back. You can almost make out John in photo 2as he heads into Church as he is wearing sailing Jacket with luminous yellow hood.Read more
