- Year of past OR future Camino
Frances (2018), Fisterra (2018)
Portuguese from Porto (Oct 2018)
I've hiked the entire Camino Frances twice (2018 and 2019) and despite looking for it, I have yet to find the memorial for Denise Thiem (the pilgrim murdered near Astorga in April of 2015). Yet this year I came across this beautiful mural 13KM west of Burgos (my photo location says "Rabe de las Calzadas) on which "Denise" and appears to be a "fallen pilgrim" in need of help. I can't help but think it's a reference to Denise Thiem, certainly a "fallen pilgrim." I think about Denise often and I'm really curious if anyone knows whether or not this mural is also a memorial for her. I can't find anything on the internet about it.
