As you can see by the graphic, we did a lot of climbing! It was beautiful scenery and not many breaks. I did not take a break until I met Vern at the top of the mountain. Vern walked with a herd of cows, not far from where the wild horses were running. There are two routes today: The mountain route, hard climb but 3 miles shorter. The second route was longer but flatter.

An Hórreo (A Granary)

A granary is a storehouse or room in a barn for threshed grain or animal feed. Ancient or primitive granaries are most often made of pottery. Granaries are often built above the ground to keep the stored food away from mice and other animals and from floods.

A Church In Lourenzá

A man was just about to lock the door at 8 pm and was happy to let us in and show us the church.
Tomorrow the church will be closed because he wants to go fishing.

Pro Tip #4: A Buff (Photo by Henrí)

For me, a Buff is one of the most important pieces of clothing I can have on the Camino. In the heat I can soak it or pour water on it. Then I can put it around my neck, on my head or in my hat. In the cold weather I use it around my neck and can pull it up just below my eyes for added warmth. Here is a quick demonstration of how to use a Buff: (I am a happy customer, not a salesperson😀)
