Day 16 of walking (I think)

The days are starting to blur a bit but today (Wednesday ) was a bit different. We made a planned diversion to Samos……site of a Benedictine monastery for 1500 years. Quite stunning. Longest cloister in Spain, it has been restored after burning down last century. An excellent guided tour showed us the cloisters and amazing murals, the abbey church and the sacristy that is the same size as many of our churches! We then had only 15km of walking up and down hill through beautiful rural Galicia to reach Sarria. 86 miles to go. 5 days of walking.
