Camino – Puente La Reina (Day 6)

Date: Sun 12th May
Distance: 24km
Temperature: Cool to cold
Mood: Flat

We awoke to piped monastery music at 6am. Up and out by 8am (still the last to leave). Whilst breakfast was included, it consisted of just coffee and toast, so it didn’t take much convincing to top up when seeing and smelling a local bakery when walking through Pamplona on the way out.

The gardens on the way out of town were brimming of beautiful springtime flowers

The scenery as always thus far on our journey was spectacular as the climbed Alto del Perdón (780m) dotted with wind turbines for miles along the mountain ridge.

At the summit we were rewarded with the famous steel cut outs of a pilgrim scene, before descending down the other side. Unfortunately, at this point, my camera battery went flat!

Today’s walk was much harder as the accumulation of kms is taking its toll on our bodies. Mostly sore muscles around the shoulders from weight bearing and of course in the legs.

After walking through many small hamlets/towns we made it to Puente de Reine, famous for it’s 11th century stone bridge (Queens bridge). On entering the town we made enquiries at the first Albergue we came across to find that they also had private rooms with their own bathrooms!
