Day 11 – Logroño to Navarette

Day 11 – Logroño to Navarette

Date: 12 September 2018

Departure Time: 07:55 am
Arrival Time: 11:20 am
Distance: 12.8 kms
Cumulative Distance: 178 kms
Percentage Completed: 19.25%
Accommodation: Hotel Rey Sancho
Weather: Warm, clear skies – 28 degrees

Today was a very short walk of 13 kilometres to Navarette. We initially walked through the outskirts of Logroño which was unremarkable, and then proceeded to a recreational reserve which was just as unremarkable. The last third of the walk was through heavily fruit laden vineyards, which are always a welcome sight.

We are staying at Hotel Rey Sancho in Navarette. We have a massive room with an amazing view. The most remarkable part of the day is the gothic church, which has a simply stunning Baroque retablo. We spent the best part of an hour being in awe of it. Navarrette itself is a very picturesque town. The weather is perfect and we enjoyed some excellent tapas for lunch. As we write this it is 6.45 pm and we  are sitting in a plaza with the locals drinking gin and tonics. Not too shabby at all. Off to partake in a pilgrims meal soon.

Another relatively easy day tomorrow with only 16 kilometres to Nájera.
