Highway or slow way

 

galicia2 018Went by bus from Lugo in Galicia to meet up with up with my pilgrim companion. The driver apparently was inspired by the Spanish F1 driver Fernando Alonso .
Fully concentrated on the possibilities of survival I lost the chance to enjoy the beautiful green Galician surroundings.

I tried the slow lane instead. Can highly recommend 3km/h through the oak forest and some birdsong in the background.

September 10. Galicia, Spain.

See you in Cebreiro

Every year at September 8 around 30 000 people gather on top of the mountain in the Galician village Pedrafita do Cebreiro.

Some turn up for religious reasons but most of the visitors come for la fiesta. Transportation varies, quite a few persons walk as it is along the pilgrim route Camino de Santiago, some people go by car or bicycle and others take the horse.

The village is situated at the border between Leon and Galicia. At the church Santa Maria la Real you supposedly will find  the Holy Grail.. there where some people also commenting about a visit by the Virgin herself some time ago. Lots of saints and virgins passes by in these regions!!
