Padrón to EscravitudeOctober 5, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C
We arrived in Padrón at about 10:00, had some café, took care of some business at an ATM and a Farmacia.
We visited the church there, dedicated to Santiago. It houses the Roman ‘pedron’ stone, which is said to have moored the stone boat which carried St James to Spain. Also a statue of St James the Moor Killer. As well as the pilgrim history, James was said to appear during a battle to help the Christians overcome the Moors.
We walked on out of Padrón, along the highway, then turned in past farms and villages. Then found our albergue, which is a beautiful renovated building.Read more
