The Spanish Chapter – Day 16 – Hornillos del Camino to Castrojeriz

Breakfast at the Albergue was nothing to write home about. We set out on an overcast and windy morning. We past San Bol which looked like a shed and on to Hontanas. We took refreshments at the first Albergue and then continued to San Antón. The ruins on the hill marked Castrojeriz and we stopped at Albergue Ultrea.

The Albergue is a real find at €48 for a double room with en-suite.

Dinner was the pilgrim menu with no meat. We went to the supermarket and bought some lentils and mushrooms and the cook added them to the meal.

After dinner we were shown the old wine press and taken into the wine cellar. There are 4km of connected wine cellars under Castrojeriz but these days they are walked off in each property (this occurred during the civil war). It was cool and we had a tasting.
