Pay close attention to the following directions. For several years, and even at the time of publication, the route ahead has been the subject of much trouble.


Shortly before arriving here you will have crossed a very old stone bridge. You may not have noticed its age for the modern wood decking, but it is known by the locals as the ‘bridge of fever.’ It earned that rather onerous nickname when Saint Elmo (Telmo) fell ill and died here during his pilgrimage in 1251. There are two historical characters that bear the name Saint Telmo, and both are considered patrons of sailors. However only one of them (not this one) has been canonized a Saint.
