@Lynda t Hola Lynda - if I was asked to wager I'd say this was approaching Navarrete - mid-way between Logrono and Najera. I remember being able to see the village/town? about 30 or 45 minutes before I arrived. ( I agree that there are vineyards west of Ponferada, around Cacabelos and further west towards Villafranca del Bierzo). Cheers
@Fletchonides : whilst I agree it does look like Cirauqui - it appears to big a town for Cirauqui which (according to Brierley) has 500 population; whilst Navarrete has around 2900. Still either way its a great photo - pilgrims/vineyard/town/shower/bed!!??
It is etched into my memory; I had some seafood tapas for lunch in Puente la Reina, and stopped for an icecream in Cirauqui, and shortly thereafter was puking my guts up along the roadside. It continued until the evening. Fortunately I was ok the next day.
