We left at early dusk to head out of Burgos. On our way out of town we were greeted with the following.
This was a former convent of nuns called the convent of St. Bernard housing at one time Cistercian nuns.
A drizzly, raw walk out of town.
A final goodbye to the cathedral.
The Arch of St. Martin at the town’s end.
We continued on to start the beginning of a part of the Camino called La Meseta which intersects on the Camino between Burgos and Astorga. It is a rather long stretch of rolling hills, wide skies and open spaces consisting mostly of fields of wheat, barley or oats. Pilgrims, especially in hot weather, can find it quite disorienting.
A scenic walkway as we depart Borgos.
