How, you may ask did tired pilgrims make the 29 km stage from Navarra to La Rioja so quickly? We are still recuperating and felt a short bus ride was in order and here we are in Lagroño (PRS-29). We are sorry to have missed the church in Los Arcos but that is for next time. Once we got our bearings we visited PRS-29-4, the Concatredal de Santa María la Redonda which is truly inspiring. There is a painted Crucifixion by Michelangelo.
After noon we walked the Camino a bit, stopped for lunch and then checked into our Albergue for the night. It is a real one with bunk beds for 24 in a room. I hope our coughs have calmed enough. After relaxing and blogging, we went for a long walk to see the way we will be going in the morning. First we passed the Pilgrim Fountain
