Day 11 Pueblo de Sanabria to Pardonelo The start of the climb from the valleys, plains and rivers

  • Barry 






Today the rivers and the song Nature boy really caught my attention

Apart from the ongoing challenge of the body – the right foot is coping better now – the left shin splints are making me conscious of each step – which is not a bad thing

Now at 1305m above sea level in the small village of Padornelo – lucky to get a room for the night – am sharing with fellow Peregrino – Graham

Rivers of this area

River Castro








Some geography of interest  – The lowest elevation point of this Camino was in Zamora crissing the magnificent Rio Duero at 622m

Today started in Puebla de Sanabria at 936m above sea level – the town is between two rivers the Castro which feeds into the Tera – The Tera river in turn feeds into the Esla which in turn feeds the Duero River which eventually feeds into Porto in Portugal – it runs a long way and of great commercial significance

River Tera
