Tosantos to Atapeuerca – Tues 13 Sept

  • Barry 

The blisters with the compeed plasters seem to have held their integrity and not increased in numbers – looking forward to the rest day in Burgos

The early morning walks are really beautiful

Church tower Vilambistia

Along the way to Alta de la Pedraja at a rest stop we met our first South African on the Camino – Annie is also from our part of Cape Town (The Deep South) She recognized our accents ?

Three Saffies

The big challenge of the day was the trundle over Alta de la Pedraja

A memorial on top reminds of the tough history and fascist impact on the leadership of Spain in the Spanish civil war 1936 to 1939 –
The monument is dedicated to a group of 300 men from Burgos whose bodies were dumped here after their execution during the Civil War.

It is worth reading up on the Spanish civil war –

On the way down a local artist has set up seats and sells cool drinks snacks coffee etc
