Debra – Beautiful walk through the grapevines – rolling hills went on forever
Mark – Beautiful walk that embodied the stereotypical Camino landscapes
Today was one of the nicest days walking yet. It was through vineyards initially, then through rolling fields of crops. The path passed through the village of Ciruéna which was like a ghost town which we understood was the result of a failed property development.
We are staying at the beautiful Parador Santo Domingo Bernardo de Fresneda in Santo Domingo de la Calzada. While relatively expensive at €85 by Camino standards it is amazing value by Australian standards. The town itself is very pretty and welcoming and certainly one of our favourites thus far.
