Day 31a. Villalcázar, Camino.September 4 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C
We walked to the village of Villovieco. It passes through the villages of Villarmentero de Campos and Revenga de Campos and skirts Villalcázar de Sirga. We then walked down to join the old path along the river. It is a rougher track but shaded by trees.
The main monument in Villalcazár de Sirga is la Iglesia de la Virgen Blanca, a large church build between the 12th and 13th centuries by the Knights Templar. This already huge church is what remains of a much larger building which was damaged in 1755 by an earthquake and Napoleon's troops during the Napoleonic wars. They had left by the time we arrived. We stopped here and ate our bakery food.
From Villalcázar de Sirga we again followed the purpose made gravel track that runs parallel to the road for 5 kilometres until we reached Carrión de los Condes.Read more
