Belorado to San Juan de Ortega

Day Fifty Four. 16.6 Miles, 26.8 Kilometers.

Written on June 12, 2012.

Today most of the walk was on a wonderful dirt track through trees. On this kind of path it is easier to look around while I am walking. We have walked on many different types of paths: rock, mud, tractor ruts, snow, tree roots, wood planks, etc.

Today’s walking path.

While walking I noticed that a Pilgrim was walking in the opposite direction. I asked her if she was returning from Santiago and she said “yes”. Fabiana is the second Pilgrim who I have met returning from Santiago. She is returning to the South of France.

Fabiana.

9th Century ruins of Monasterio de San Felix de Oca.

Our Lady of the Rock Remits de Lavirgen de la Pena.
There was not only natural beauty to view, but also the incredible beauty of ancient structures, rich with history and tradition.
Dinner in the bar in San Juan de Ortega was wonderful. The food was delicious and traditional of the region. The group of friends from Madrid was fun to be with. We are grateful for the time we were able to spend with them.
At our table; Maria Jesus, Pascual, Paloma, Julia, Carmen, Aurora, and Pilar.
