El Camino: Hornillos to Castrojeriz

Today’s trek: Hornillos to Castrojeriz

I was able to walk without constant focus on my feet today. Well, until the path turned rocky. But mostly it was a great day.

We walked 12.5 miles from Hornillos to Castrojeriz. Hontanas, the little town in between is quite lovely and quaint.

Bibles of many denominations.

When I made it to the Convent of Saint Antón I remembered that Karrie, a Sacramento member of American Pilgrims on the Camino is volunteering there so I stopped to say hello.

We continued on to Castrojeriz where we found a Castillo, a beautiful church, lovely people and many tired pilgrims.

Cheers to us and an early night.


Siempre pa’ adelante!

About Caro

I am a social worker by training and a peace officer by profession having worked with California’s delinquent youth and young adults for 28 years. I firmly believe that our development as humans depends on our environment and that sometimes we get stuck. As such, I write about those things we sometimes ignore or fail to see until we are forced to pay attention.
