Day 46: Arzua to Labacolla

Comfortable bed in the privately run hostal at Arzua. (top)
This was far preferable to sleeping on a packed floor in the pilgrim refugio!

Parish Church at Arzua (right)

Not the usual yellow & blue shell marker

The route is still hilly! (top)

but at least it is now mostly off-road (left)

More livestock! (above and below, left)

Its hard to believe that I am only 33 kms away from Santiago (left)

Do not be fooled by this quiet looking road.
The camino was now swelled by many pilgrims from the Camino Frances, all anxious to arrive in Santiago in time for the Saint's Feastday, 25th july

A very quiet, old fountain that had a real atmosphere of peace

This will be a familiar sight to anyone who has walked or cycled to Santiago

The shell is even built into the new road (top)

Hotel room in the appropriately named La Conche at Labacolla.
By now the little group of us who had walked together this last few days had gone our separate ways
