Day 32: Aviles to Soto del Barco

The Church of the Franciscans in Aviles. The Franciscian order came to Aviles between 1267 & 1274

The doors are carved with symbols of the cross

The Church was open for Mass

Church of St Thomas of Canterbury dating from 1896 in Aviles

At the top of this path the route had been destroyed by road building and I completely lost the arrows .....

.... but fortunately found them again

Unexpectedly the weather changed and there was an incredible downpour

Shell, book and staff as opposed to bell, book and candle! This was a welcome sight for a weary, waterlogged pilgrim!
