1-2) The Cathedral in Villalcazar (home of the Virgin Blanca). Villalcazar was 2nd only to Santiago as a pilgrim destination in Spain.
3) Roses
4-5) A crèche and a cross at the monastery/Albergue we’re staying in tonight in Carrion de los Condes. Carrion de los Condes translates to “Flesh of Counts” and comes from a historical event where El Cid killed (and left to rot) several Counts from this town who had mistreated/raped his daughters. Ya just got to love history.
