Day 9 - 22km

One of my favourite days . Beautiful walk starting by moonlight.

There was a fiesta on in the afternoon and evening so lots of parades, dancing, music and food in the streets. There was dancing boys and castanets and cute young girls with baskets of vegetables.

Climbed up to the top of the cathedral tower for a great view of the countryside

Had Tapas for dinner and very yummy chocolate and biscuits from a chocolate shop

Very modern nice municipal albergue 7 E in the main street of a very nice old town. In our backyard there were roosters and chickens in cages that go into the cathedral as a part of local folklore stories.
