Camino de la Plata – Day Three, Bridges and Blue Skies

Spain, Via de la Plata

A Laxe to Ponte Ulla – 19.5 miles, 2-25-17

Down more winding idyllic country roads past newborn lambs and grazing cows in brilliant green fields. Much of the day was on the ancient Camino Real paved with polished stone and edged by gnarled oaks.

The air smelled of cut hay, cows and blooming fruit trees and sounds of birds, calling lambs and herding bells were all around.


Ponte de Taboada built in 912.

Worn stone steps and deep paths led to the river.
