(Wonderful two weeks back from the road in its last segment, April-Sun and rain. Attached is a summary in 2 parts: Daphne)

CAMINO DE SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA

Last section of about two weeks, Astorga to Santiago.

General information

The Camino de Santiago de la compost is the path the pilgrims more than 1,000 years, the third town to Christianity after Rome and Jerusalem. In fact, this is the system and drain into the Santiago-the spinal cord "-the French way (CAMINO FRANCES), called in short-Camino. The route is approximately 800 km from St. Jean Pied de Port in France to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. It is common to divide the track for about 30 days, no days of rest. By Celtic druid tradition-the meaning of initiation with 3 major steps: the physical stage-the Pyrenees mountains to the city of Burgos, the mental part is the way to Astorga, msta, and the spiritual stage-Astorga to Santiago and Finisterre continued-the end of the world.

The mythical story is religious about James, son of Zebedee, fishing from Tiberias, which was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus. Before his death at the hands of Herod Agrippa in 44 BCE in Israel, found his way to Galicia in Spain for the purpose of its cherished ancient Celts. After his death his bones in a stone taken by two students buried in Galicia. 800 years later, an innocent Shepherd (some say a monk) named PELAYO is experiencing an epiphany celebration in Galicia of Fame (hence the name kmpostela-CAMPUS STELA "Starfield"), which led him to the burial place of the lost tbreini, Jacques, San Santiago.

Bishop tiaodomir clearly identified the remains — the myth was born.

(As it happens, in this case or not, at the time of the conquest of new Spain by the Moors lands-our tbreini fishing becomes "Santiago" tamorus kill teachers. patron.)

The summary refers to the last segment of approximately 250 km from the town ASTORGA To Santiago.

The weather and the season walk.

You can go almost every year, although we recommend are the spring and fall, and of course in the summer.

Changeable weather and changes, especially in Galicia, and rain can develop quickly.

High season is from June to September, so can be difficult to get a place to sleep.

-Provisional programme outline

Before I left I was getting ready, I chose where I wanted to spend more time and sleep in them.

The distribution plan prepared.

UNo 1-20 km-ASTPRGA RABANAL DEL CAMINO

Day 2-16.5 km-MOLINASECA-RABANAL

Day 3-27 km-VILLAFRANCA DEL BIERZO-MOLINASECA

Day 4.-27.5 km VILLAFRANCA-O CEBREIRO

Day 5-21.5 km O CEBREIRO-TRICASTELA

Day 6-25 km-TRICASTELA-SARRIA (via Samos Monastery)

Day 7-22 km-SARRIA-PORTMARIN

Day 24 – 8 km – PORTMARIN-PALAS DE REI

Day 9-28 km-PALAS DE REI-PEDROUZO

Day 10-24.5 km – RIBADIS-PEDROUZO DE BAIX

Day 11-21 km-RIBADIX-SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA

Ma said simply "plan 20-22 miles per day, every seventh day rest.

In retrospect, that was true for me. The program I made was hard to resist. Missing her days walking to me, although I find it that classic bachlocot

Eventually I ended up going all day with a knapsack on his back, not knowing where I would come and find some where to sleep Albergue. Stop drawing if I want.

It was a great experience for me. Brand new and worth it.

Of course, another season could be a problem with accommodation, especially by the mile last more ...

Road equipment

As always, writers.

Think about every ounce. Although there is a pretty neat and inexpensive between albergot to transfer the equipment from one point to another, but it is assumed that most still go with the backpack.

I went with 7 kg + water, 1 liter even less. Can every few hours, almost always.

A cane or canes? Good question.

No alpine slopes, though there are ups and downs. Not that way. With a majority of one, even the locals, walking around with a cane. Certainly, Santiago is holding long sticks and downright luxurious, and memories long way left other respects it was impossible to get them on the plane.

Laundry can be done in a manner that is available through all of the points.

  

Pilgrims passport (CREDENCIAL DEL PEREGRINO)

The Passport gives you the right to sleep in albergot, gives discounts to museums (e.g. that of the Cathedral of Santiago), sometimes for the pilgrims at menu-even though everybody seems to get the discount.  Everywhere that pass you in chains-stamp in their passport.

Who goes the last 100 km to Santiago-eligible for the remission of the Church on his own misdeeds – the certificate of Compostela. Therefore SARRIA town located approximately 111 km from Santiago, double and triple the number of marchers. The typical profile and little changes.

Eligibility for Compostela is checked carefully by church officials in Santiago while examining seals (SELLO) of accommodation including homestay dates. (Some developers obsessed holchim seals, saw Spanish high school students who entered each store for stamp.)

The oyster

The undisputed symbol of the way, with historical roots and simleim. Apart from the fact that almost all the marchers bearing the shell casing, see all the historical buildings, symbols of the Knights and in churches on tombs and modern settings and ancient houses. And the graph symbols derived from the shape of the shell-mthenkst roads to Santiago.

 

  

Views

Then turn Mont Blanc is not.

After you set the expectations we might say, beautiful landscapes and captivating. Clear air and oxygen. Because many agricultural landscapes-they play an important role here. April blossom was in full swing – all deciduous trees: apples, pears, almonds, green meadows cannot really contain. With lots of flowers of the meadow. In the farms and the houses-beautiful fully blooming camellias at the top, and the engagement, lilac, Rotem ...

And forests. Oak forests, chestnut forests and age-old. Meet the trees saw large leg lifts. New forests planted by them. Whatever hits. And all covered with MOSS and ferns, and sometimes thin and eucalyptus trees. And the Woodpecker. And the cuckoo. Coco.

  

B

The albergot (ALBBERGE) the Pilgrim hostels, and modern apartments situated in historic buildings, and others. All accommodation in dormitori (similar to mountain chalets in Europe),

In large or small rooms, bunk beds. (The first question is always whether there still beds bottom?). In all other respects remain shoes outside. Mostly there are laundry options (sometimes machines and dryers), cooking, kitchens, bathrooms, heating and lots of atmosphere.

A big town has many and varied accommodations more than three houses in the village. Except halbergot also have hostels, pensions and casa rural they houses situated and comfortable.

In principle, the albergot are divided into two main groups: municipal- municipal and private privado.

Gliseia of the albergot district municipal elections are usually XUNTA, with a spacious kitchen for cooking and dressing rooms for the many pilgrims. What is important to know, almost all no blankets. (Except at monte de gozo where Manuel, the cute gets you everything ...) Get a disposable sheet and they expect. Anyone who walks in the warm season or with a sleeping bag. Whoever goes only with liner that can be problematic. While at night they heated continuously, but afternoon can be cold. Keep in mind, this is no reason to carry a sleeping bag. Just change elsewhere.

The albergot most expensive private number euros (about 10 euros vs 6 EUR)

But the levels vary greatly, the books are not always up to date, and much news not in the lists.

Albergot accommodation prices do not include meals.

Breakfast is possible to eat at the Albergue. (2-3). Don't expect: tea/coffee, toast, butter, jam. MARMELADA/CON MANTEQUILLA TOSTADA

Most marchers reject, stopping to eat at the first nice bar on the way.

Most of the private albergot have a special dinner menu MENU PEREGRINO pilgrims? 6-8 euros that includes appetizer, main course, dessert, wine and water often. (Simple table wine-they call him tinto) should announce a certain amount if you join or not. The choice is always between the possibilities for interesting food outside and companionship, pleasant conversations, laughs and wine in large shared meals.

People

If there's anything I've learned about people in a way that everybody has their own baseball's not so clich?.

I've seen people go before a sixth and seventh and all them first. I met a woman who went to Santiago after the creation of serious illness, I traveled with two Dutch brothers who make the trip for the third time, going further back, but always stop a few days earlier, I never want to go to Santiago. I met a couple from France and 70 British Colombia who met three years ago on the road and then another thing every time dating and volunteers for a few weeks in one albergot.

I met two Germans started walking calmly and slowly walking became a kind of challenge, they have developed the skills and fitness walk and at the end of approximately 36 miles a day. Finally found themselves in Santiago a week before full design time.

Some are going to go, to introduce something new, those who actually make the journey into the background and is baseball, as those who go for the challenge, the landscapes, the faith.

And everything's fine. All acceptable. And Camino.

Food

Maybe I'm not the right person to tell you about. I'm a vegetarian all my life, offences appear, so descriptions of meals of lust disappears into the octopus dish not received.

The menu bars and caf?s along the way is limited and basic, fresh and tasty, though Dr.

Can you tell us about thePATATA TORTILLA potato pie eye and cut eggs usually round format like cake and comes with two thick slices of bread a floured farmers.

EMPANADA - Pastry with meat or fish, Galicia is his hometown and he moved with a large immigration to South America and is recognized today with Argentina. Generally no personal units appears as circular template cut pastry into slices.

On SUCH DE SANTIAGO Almond Cake in lean and delicious with powdered sugar and jagged-edged cross Santiago flowers (fleur de lis is actually not IRIS Lily).

BOCADILLO – sanbitz ' Incredible Hulk appears in several forms – white bread, often with prosciutto, JAMON it or cheese (QUESO) If you want an omelet at bokadilio-ask FRANCES OMELET , or will you always 2 round eye balls and liquid. Galician cuisine would rather commit suicide than to blow see eggs!

Lettuce, tomato, onion, grated carrot and corn-ENSALADA MIXA- always comes with tuna (ATUN).

Wine, beer, Cola, coffee (CAF? CON LECHE or AMERICANO)-smallest village well can be found.

So don't stay hungry- BUEN PROVECHO!

  

And refreshment areas

Typically, before entering a significant settlement on the way to find a beautiful, picnic or just relaxing. Some obvious historical place. Ancient trees, sometimes drinking trough or symbolic stone to find drinking water (AGUA POTABLE), or oyster. Large areas, small, symbolic magic. Some very new, contemporary spirit with a lot of thought.

There are stations with refreshment stand that just halfway with water bottles and water, bananas, apples (not always appetizing), energy bars and silver bowl. Most 5THsays, leave as you think fit. Many also have a stamp.

In the village of San kristovo, Samos monastery, where hired Santiago's Cathedral-blocks found refreshment, machine installed on a wall in the middle of nowhere. It's the thought that counts.

Don't you get the wrong idea, travelling between stands in Dizengoff. Individual has in a way, where there are no beer or coffee, no mapping, no markup. Encountered by surprise and sometimes sometimes you fall ball as banana dreamed of awaits you in two weeks in the rain and Sun.

  

The hand. HORREOS

Long, narrow buildings raised and raised ground, sometimes quite isolated by pages or bases (PEGOLLOS), some ancient and impressive, are used as warehouses and small farming barns to feed a corn-,. Galicia distribution characteristic and start to see them especially after SARRIA, part of the farm, or from the front, appears in various forms and in various materials-granite slabs, bricks, stones, tree. Most issues also crosses icons

One of the albergot told me that in the past were actually producing them are the crops for the Church. They were placed so that church officials will be able to go and get some. Until today they are considered church property and therefore workarounds sometimes to not be destroyed. Sounds about right, I didn't find it OK.

    

  

Churches, chapels and crosses

Admit that my biggest motivation to go out love to endless walks in landscapes, cultural context was of the road. Since our first year students described Bezalel-Prof. ren Schori the pilgrimage to Santiago, the streaming of more than 1% (!) of the population of Europe so far city through weeks and sometimes months, of risks of the Wei develops of poets and ballads-poems, intensive intermediate to that was also designed as atonement for serving punishment but also to people who found themselves in the company. Or kneel clutter feudalism, or desired in expanding their horizons and living in a time when people could not afford it. And while walking for years, physical and logistical infrastructures were built, initially in towns just a day's walk apart and slowly change texture urban rural road services which have targeted points. History in motion.

More so, I knew I wanted to taste it, experience a bit of glory then.

The ecclesiastical establishment and tchchnotho was never my favorite, but you can't deny that the history of art and architecture of Western culture walks hand in hand with the development of Christianity. The money was invested there. There were made technical breakthroughs. Artistic experiences. Therefore the churches and the chapels always attracted me, especially the early ones are simple and have no end. (Most of them, incidentally, called Santa Maria.)

  

Signs and markings

If there was something that I got hooked to it at the end of the route, these were the milestones of Galicia that at least every mchrises miles on his escalating timeline distance to Santiago. All important stone (5 or 0) receives special attention from the stones, crosses, flowers, shoes that have finished their job, that of a fern. Peach seed, we immediately made contacts, letters, photos, notes, and dear ones. Each breadcrumb is a small wall and approaching the level and Santiago, the load on the stones grow.

There are the distances with the icon is embedded with a distance in miles, and the blue and yellow ceramics with bright glaze of Highland roads to Santiago as shell folds.

The sign blue and white – black man walking quickly with a stick. The yellow-blue sign warning of Camino's encounter with the road walking and driving.

-Cities can find embedded Oyster in the sidewalks or even the protection caps. The orientation of the folds Oyster gathering is always in the direction of Santiago-apart from the protection caps can't trust local handymen that returned to their seats.

And above all, the yellow arrow directly reduces, decisively drawn on walls, houses, everything we can to sign erected sampedro's native Galicia who emigrated to revival and marked the Camino Frances to go today. Always at the eye wanders, second quarter until you have the yellow arrow.

      

     

The Pilgrim's Guide. CODEX CALIXTINUS

Colorful illustrated guide through 12th century written by Pico (PICAUD), French monk who walked the road described in the stories, paintings and music the characters tribulation, landscapes, people, while providing practical advice and recommendations on accommodation, rest stops, dodging bandits and wolves. The original book was stolen from the Cathedral of Santiago in July 2011 under 5 security cameras. A year later found in the garage of the former Cathedral employee fired after 25 years of work and was in a legal dispute with a "workhorse. Copies of the Codex are beautiful Samos monastery and Cathedral Museum. Asked where is the original Museum workers and they said all these copies is displayed.

Hey Daphne

I read with great interest and look forward to continuing those handwritten notes are your eye.

I'm planning to do that. Astorga?

Why don't you start from St. JEAN LA PIED? Whether MASETE is a walking track (and if not why not started ...)?

And some places and hostels that specifically recommends?

Thank you

Ofer

Thank you thank you thank you amber, Amnon MA (promise) thanks, Ofer.

With such impetus it soon.

Try to give all the details-in short: Astorga arrived with the wonderful buses ALSA. And could also replace Leon.

Msta Plains are among Burgos to Leon. Opinions of heard. Especially in the summer. I came across a lot of dligo on this.

Started in France because of time limits. I had a couple of days I was going to Finisterre. It really was missing.

Recommendations or warnings to combine albrot.

Sub
It all depends on what you plan and track how long, what time landing in Madrid or Barcelona and coordinating with the msta-trains is recommended. Not to give up.
Public transport-bus and train-again, depends on the detailed planning.
About hostels-difficult to plan in advance exactly where the Talon, and things go wrong, I always recommend Albergo principle, you can pre-order so you can add time to walk instead of running with everyone get catch, most meals, comfortable and more pleasant, less people.

ALSA bus site to Astorga
RENFE's website.
St. JEAN has transportation from BIARITS or BAYONN train too, I think, can be reached also from Spain-Pamplona public transport. All this takes time.
The problem away 10 days doesn't know where it is but if you sit down and do an accurate account by maps and guidebooks that okay. Go to town with about a train or bus to Madrid or Barcelona.
The crossing of the Pyrenees not awful at all, mostly long and relatively moderate increase of day on an asphalt road. From ST. JEAN has a short rise a bit difficult on the road and 6-8 km approximately.
If 10 days then start at one ponprda or West until Santiago.
Send you maps and profiles-
