First day on the Primitivo.September 14 in Spain ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C
I was planning for a 25 km day, but when I saw the sign pointing 3 km downhill to another pre-Romanesque church, San Pedro de Nora, I couldn’t resist. Good thing it was early in the day, or I wouldn’t have gone.The Señora who lives next door has the keys, and she was very happy to let me in, though the real beauty is from the outside. It’s right next to a river, and it’s gorgeous.
I’ve talked to more people on this first day than I did on all of the days on the Salvador put together. A rough head count is 18 or 19 people! So the Primitivo is crowded. Lots of ups and downs, and I can feel the difference of the three years between this time and last. But it’s beautiful. I met an 80 yo Spaniard this morning, so I’ve got some more years I hope!Read more
