My Pilgrimage in Pictures – June 15th, 2013

I thought it would be fun to post one picture that captured a special moment for each day I was on the Camino in 2013. Considering that I took over 2,000 pictures it will be tough to pick just one but here goes.

Ermita Virgen de la Puente. I was still 3 kilometers east of Sahagún when adjacent to the río Valderaduey I saw the picturesque ermita y hospital de Nuestra Señora del Puente. It dates back from the medieval times and is a noteworthy example of the Sahagún Mudéjar style. In the Middle Ages it was also a hospital that was administered by the Augustinians. There once were 5 more ermitas in the area: Santa Marina, San Sebastián, San Lázaro, San Andrés and Cristo del Humilladero. All have since disappeared.
