What have the Romans ever done for us?– Life of Brian
Carrión del los Condes to Ledigos
After breakfast we explored the monastery before heading off on the days walk.
Today we would be walking along a 17km long stretch of old Roman road to the next village. It was perfect weather, cool but sunny with a light breeze. There’s nowhere to get food or water along the way but it wasn’t a problem because we just kept walking and did the entire stretch in about three hours.
I found it a very pleasant walk with views to the horizon and distant mountains to the north. The Romans are famous for their straight roads and they didn’t disappoint.
I wondered how many people have travelled this road.
Calzadilla de la Cueza at the end of the 17km stretch only became visible as we were almost on top of it, nestled behind a rise in the landscape. We had some apple and cheese and a tonic water before heading to today’s destination, Ledigos, 6km away.
We put our feet up at Albergue La Morena after covering 24km.
