Via de la Plata - Day 20: Valverde de Valdelcasa to Fuenterroble de Salvatierra (12km on 5/08/17)

We had instant coffee and digestive biscuits in the Albergue and were on the route by 7am or so.  It was a nice 12km walk mostly on gravel tracks to Fuenterroble de Salvatierra and we had coffee and a snack then checked into the Albergue Parroquial de Fuenterroble de Salvatierra.  Then back to a bar for a nice lunch.  At the albergue we are the only two in a double-bunk room in a  building sponsored by ABOC (American Pilgrims on the Camino).  Afternoon we toured the church of the parish that sponsers the albergue - it’s a very well known albergue for this camino route.  

Morning path shaded by trees

Later we walked in more exposed area but it was comfortable before noon

Our Albergue

Very comfortable grounds of the Albergue

Our albergue has multiple small buildings (plus the usual large bunk rooms) and this building where we stay is sponsored by APOC (American Pilgrims on the Camino)

The parish priest collected tradespersons wagons

Next to the church is a portion of the Roman road - excavated to show the cross-section of the construction.

The local church of the parish that sponsors our albergue - we toured and went to the bell tower.
