First look at Navarette
I agree with amorfati1, a beautiful picture. Navarette was a gem on the Camino. I attended Mass at the 16th century Church of the Assumption there in May 2012; the altar was simply spectacular where gold laminate covered ornate carvings from the floor to the dome 80 feet up! By the way, I believe the 'tree-beings' are actually "old vine" grapes which produce superior wine.
I arrived here just after 4.00 pm having cycled some 40 km on a very hot afternoon; I was totally spent and obtained one of the last beds in town. Its a totally different view arriving via the walkers Camino. I think the church was closed that night as no one mentioned a pilgrims mass. Will check it out next Spring. Cheers!
I and my walking companion stayed here again last May. My “Camino Daughter “ had blisters & a bit of cold/fever, of course our albergue was right at the far end of town. But it had a good kitchen and there was a supermarket close by. It’s one town I would always recommend!
