Walking the Camino is much more interesting than planning your next albergue or talking with cousin Bill on your cellphone, educational and fun if you know a bit of history, architecture, and art. Saint Bénézet for example, he who built the bridge we all know at Avignon (not Camino) and founded Frères Pontifes. Right from the start the Camino is chock full of ancient bridges, Trinidad de Arre and Puenta de la Magdelena entering Pamplona for example. Logroño sports a serious bridge too modern and full of buses, trucks, and cars, and Burgos has a nice bridge to look back and take a picture of the city. Then you have the wonder of Hospital de Órbigo, legends a fine but history counts. Saint Bénézet also built the bridge at Pont Saint Esprit. Please see below photographs of both Hospital de Órbigo and Pont Saint Esprit. For those unfortunate souls who have never walked there or those who were too tired from walking to notice, Hospital de Órbigo is the bridge with little or no water flowing underneath.
