Day 6 saw our last full day of our walk along the Camino de Santiago as Day 7 would be a short day. Day 6’s walk took about 5 hours (perhaps about 18 km) not including our lunch stop at Amenal. I felt both excited at getting close to the finish line and also a little bit sad that the end was so close. We left the hotel (and our luggage) in Salceda after a good breakfast and walked a few minutes to get back on the Camino. Along the way, I had been collected the needed stamps on my “credenciales” (pilgrim’s passport); these are required to be able to get the “Compostela” certificate upon arrival at the offices in Santiago de Compostela.
Sights along the Camino
An amazing place to stay: Pazo Xan Xordo
Once we got to Lavacolla, a stone’s throw from Santiago’s airport actually, we walked a little bit to get to our lodging for the night: Pazo Xan Xordo. We were wowed by this 17th century home and farm with its own chapel and beautiful gardens. This place was a real dream!
It also has a small restaurant but it was not open for dinner so our host dropped us off and picked us back up for dinner in town, where we celebrated being so close to finishing with a great dinner and a dessert I had not had, but seen often, yet: ice cream cake!
A perfect ending to another great day along the Camino!
