May 27, 2014 Pontevedra to Caldas de Reis

23.1 km (14.4 mi) closer to Santiago–only two days left and feeling bittersweet about it. The walk through river valleys with many Albariño vines was a real treat. Many of us pilgrims now know each other and we wave as we leapfrog each other on the Camino. It’s particularly special seeing the old Roman road designator number XIX (see pic). Who knows who all walked these roads and now I am–a small thrill.

Caldas de Reis is named after the natural hot springs. One pic had me standing in front of the one springs used for washing. Also took a pic of my favorite Galician architecture with columns holding the first floor.
