Etapa 11 - Dende Belorado ata San Juan de Ortega


New Camino footbridge on leaving Belorado

Entering Espinosa del Camino

The town fountain also has goldfish in it

Many old houses lie empty along the camino - it is cheaper to build new ones.



Cowslips

Waymark and landscape

Ruins of Abade de San Felices

Villafranca Montes de Oca; the El Pajaro gave us a very good meal

This refugio had lots of space for drying clothes (sorely needed)

The next section over heathland was very muddy

Valdefuentes; ruined hermitage

The fountain - but this one is not for drinking

The rain had gone today, but the camino takes time to dry out



First view of San Juan de Ortega

Restaurant - another nice breakfast

Retable showing souls in hell - where you go if you do not complete the pilgrimage!

The pillar illuminated at the equinox with a shaft of sunlight

The onward path was muddy too
