O Cebreiro – Part III: Classtime

Okay.  Big day.

After some free time we met back in front of the albergue/restaurant Venta Celta to start our ambulatory class.

Our first stop: a palloza.  This is a pre-medieval dwelling.  One door for people, one door for animals, no chimney.  The smoke from the fire was expected to make its own way out through the thatched roof.

 

After the palloza, we visited the church, which is said to house the Holy Grail.

 

And now back down through town to our classroom in the sky, where we learned more about the region of Galicia and its history.


 

Finally back to Venta Celta, where we absolutely devoured our dinner.

 

Greetings from Galicia!
