    Resting in Burgos

    Used this recommendation and saw Carlos yesterday at his Hands on Physiotherapy at Calle Vitoria 37-39 (closer to 39 next the pharmacy.) He is extraordinarily excellent diagnostician and interventionist. He may or may not cure your problem but you will leave confident you know what can be done...

    Michelangelo painting in Logrono

    I understand from the book the Pilgrimage Road to Santiago that there is a Michelangelo painting of the crucifixion in the Iglesia de Santa Maria la Redonda.

    I made it one day- what I wished I had understood more clearly

    Thanks for your post--very helpful. You wrote: "At no point are you further than 2 km - less than 1 1/2 miles - away from an inhabited village and/or a road that a taxi can take to pick you up." I have been trying to find numbers for taxi services and have not yet found ones that pick up as...

    Road from Col Leopolder to Ibaneta

    Superb explanation and maps. Thank you. Much appreciated. What has been confusing, that you have clarified, is the criss-crossing of the road by the path with multiple branch points. So there is an option when the Way first meets NA-2033: you can just take the road and loop around or you can...

    Road from Col Leopolder to Ibaneta

    Thanks. In the lower picture what is the road on the left? I am confused by this because at the top the easier way is to the right and it looks like a paved road. In the lower photo the right way is a dirt path

    Road from Col Leopolder to Ibaneta

    Due to creaky knees we are planning to take the less steep route from Col Leopolder on the Route Napoleon that goes to Ibaneta. Is the way to this road well-marked from the top?
