Route changed: Villafranca Montes de Oca & San Juan de Orteg

The route has been changed between these 2 stops on the Camino. The steep climb out of Villafranca is still there, but there is no fountain past the Monumento de los Caidos. Instead, they have made a wide pathway through the forest over level ground. It´s still a hefty trek, though. :D My legs still got quite a workout.

I think this was already the case when I walked in April 2006 - as you say, shortly after the war memorial the latter section is wide as a motorway, flat, water-free, chilly and bleak
