Nearly a 21 mile walk today (Day 19) in the heat and sunshine. Feels amazing to have finished for the day! Tomorrow León, and luxury! I’m booked into the Parador in León: sheets, towels, bars of soap and hopefully a big fluffy robe!!! I am very easy to please these days!!!!

Fascinated by these traditional mud and straw (cob) houses in nearly every village in this area of Spain. “Cob is an ancient building material, that may have been used for building since prehistoric times.” The texture and coloring draw you in. Deep set windows and heavy timber frames create an interesting three dimensional facade.
