16 th September

19 km
24 deg
Fromista to Carrion de Los Condes

Started early in the morning
And walked the dreaded Meseta, flat and on a gravel path by a busy road
Not my favourite day as found it quite boring.
Stopped at Villacazar de Sirga which had a lovely church with a statue of Mary who it said perform miracles.
Apparently it was under the protection of the Knights Templar.
The iglesia de Santiago was constructed in 1845 after the original 12 century structure was lost in a fire.
Carrion de Los Condes is named for a legend that El Cid’s daughters married counts in this area. when they tried to rob him ,the cid had them killed.
