Ciruena to Granon.

Dinner the other evening with Brian and Stephanie and a Frenchman, in Ciruena. 
Stopped for the end of Mattins with the Cistercian nuns in Santo Domingo de la Calzada. 

The Retablos in the cathedral in Santo Domingo de la Calzada. 

Chains of some Christians rescued from the Moores. 

We stayed in a real neat albergue last night. It was in the bell tower of a 15th cent. church, run by the parish. All the pilgrims helped prepare dinner, then Mass at 7pm dinner at 8 and night prayer by candlelight in the church. We all slept on mats on the floor in the tower. A very peaceful and restful evening. 
Place to leave your boots. 
Door knocker at the Albergue. A pilgrims staff, scallop shell and gourd. All signs of the Camino. 
Retablos of the parish church in the villiage of Granon. 
Chanter stand. 
Choir stalls where we prayed night prayer. 

Dinner at the albergue in Granon. 

Hopefully I'll be in Burgos by Monday afternoon!

Thanks for the prayers my blisters are healing nicely! 


  1. I love the little candle holders on the cantor's looks like you are enjoying your trip. Pray for me and for peace in the Middle East.

  2. Continue to be fascinated as you make your way to Santiago. It's so easy to surround you in prayer while gazing at the visual icons you send of the journey. Thank you so much! Fraternal affection and prayer!
