The way to Astorga led up some really nice hills. Great hills, wonderful hills. Then a plunge down a hill into the plain of Astorga followed by a steep climb up into town.
Getting ready to leave the albergue.
This was a stop along the way. There was fruit, juice and other snacks provided free for pilgrims or in exchange for a “donativo” (donation). Those of us who took something left a little something as well.
Annie and Jill take a well deserved break.
Kayla at the stone cross on the hill overlooking Astorga.
The Romans built the town at the edge of their empire on a hill with some hot springs. Later in the day we got a tour.
