Day15 Sun 06 Apr
On a beautiful sunny day, cold in the morning & warm in the afternoon, our longest day – 25 kilometers to Puente la Reina seemed easy going, even the climb up to Alto del Perdón (735m). Today was VISTA DAY, views forever.
Puente la Reina (Queen’s Bridge) – many years ago the ferymen were ripping off pilgrims to row them across the Arga, so the Queen built a bridge for the pilgrims. It is the most beautiful in Spain.
Day 16 Mon 07 Apr
Another beautiful day for the short walk (14 kilometers) to Lorca. Today is ROMAN DAY with old roads to walk and bridges to cross. You could almost hear ancient footsteps. We paused in the village of Cirauqui, one of our favorites. We stayed in the Albergue at Lorca, owned by the friendly and hyperactive José Ramón and his Korean wife whom he met doing the Camino in 2010.
