The big news is that we have now walked more than 500km (315miles) of our 790km (490mile) pilgrimage! So, "only" 175 miles to go.
Pilgrims like to place stones in piles or sometimes to point out the way.
The medieval era bridge into Hospital de Orbigo, today's destination.
Below I will give you a tour of tonight's alberbue - Albergue San Miguel
As we walked up, we were greeted by the hospitaler (i.e. the owner and host).

Adjacent to staircase and in view of bunkbeds - sinks, 3 "WC's" and then 3 showers with all open at the top and, of course, shared by all. Things are not usually this out in the open but shared bathrooms are very common.
Pretty nice bunkbed filled room. Ours is towards the back.
Some albergues have kitchen space where one can cook dinner.
We also have courtyard and space for eating outside.
All of this for 7 euros each - and some places are less. Breakfast here is 3 euros.
