I think you are referring to the Cruz de Ferro - the Iron Cross which is 2km after Foncebadon and 2 km beforee Manjarin in the Irago mountains (230km from Santiago).

Acutally, you can leave a stone anywhere along the camino - at the base of crosses, on top of way markers etc.

Sillydoll, Paul,

thanks for your replies,

Sillydoll, I knew a stone could be left anywhere, but I have one that is special (as they all they are) that I want to leave at the cross.

thanks again
David
