Day 22 Avila 26k
An early climb to begin a cooler day and the trail follows the Rio for a lot of the morning over rolling hills with more surprised cows moving aside for the determined pilgrim! After 20k a welcome bar break for a Coca Cola bomb before a walk into this city. The old part of this city is enclosed by the most spectacular wall with no less than 88 semi circular turrets completely enclosing the town. There is also a very impressive gothic cathedral inside the walls. It is the largest fully illuminated monument in the world. The albergue here is terrific and tonight I share with a happy Frenchman who insists his country will win the soccer World Cup this year!!
