As we leave town on this chilly, dreary day we are joined by a few fellow pilgrims so conversation flows freely.
Dorothy and Ruby, along with Joan, enjoy a Kodak moment in front of Bar Elvis. Unfortunately, Elvis has left the building… it’s closed.
Reliegos, Spain is our stopping point for the day and we find parts of the medieval walls still intact.18th century St. Mary’s church in Reliegos is built on top of the previous 12th century church.Many artifacts from the 12th century church can be found inside.
Altar is fine baroque 18th century.
No reservations and bunkbeds are already spoken for at Albergue El Jardin del Camino…
…but we are happy they allowed us to stay anyway. Mattresses on the floor near the albergue bathroom are just perfect.
The local hangout cafe for the community and pilgrims is directly below us and the spacious yard includes laundry tubs along with clotheslines. Doesn’t get much better than that, right?
Top three photo picks of the day:
One thought on “Camino de Santiago: El Rancho Burgo to Reliegos”
Elvis!!! Yes!!! I guess it’s not quite the real thing, but at least in spirit!! Glad that he can also be found in Spain!! Good job, best blogger ever!!
