León and Lugo
One of the most beautiful sections of el Camino Frances.
León is a favorite starting point for many pilgrims. From now one the albergues beginning to get more crowded compared to days past. Which is a good thing, new pilgrims, new friendships. By now your body is used to walking and you have established your routine. Please be patient with the new recruits who do not know the albuergue rules.
We reach Galica and the mountain range. The weather here is unpredictable and rain is not uncommon.
Wikipedia: Galicia, an autonomous community in Spain’s northwest, is a verdant region with an Atlantic coastline. The cathedral of regional capital Santiago de Compostela is the reputed burial place of the biblical apostle Saint James the Great, and the destination for those following the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route. The western cliffs of Cape Fisterra were considered by the Romans to be the end of the known world.
