Leon to Villafranca del Bierzo

Today was cool, rainy and very windy. So It was not a great day for being outside. We took the mountainous scenic route from Leon to Villafranca del Bierzo. But first we found some coffee and pastries in Leon.


Then we took a walk in Leon along the river to the Convent of San Marcos and back to our hotel.

We also bought some bread and cheese for lunch. The cheese vendor gave us samples and offered us wine from a bota bag to go with our samples! We bought some cheese but passed on the wine.

As I said the road through the mountains was beautiful and scenic.

In Villafranca del Bierzo we walked around a bit and discovered that we are on the Camino de Santiago.

We also discover a lovely quilt shop.

And a castle ruin.
