Stage 17: Caldalso de los Vidrios to Cebreros 20.7km plus some


This morning took the scenic route along a mountain track, avoiding the main road from Cadalso de los Vidrios to Cebreros, as recommended by the manager of Hostal San Jose. Best advice: energising scenery rather than a demoralising trudge along tarmac with oncoming traffic. Further than the guide book, but well marked and worth the extra distance. Albergue shut in Cebreros – its starting to seem that many of them are. Perhaps it’s a seasonal thing .. although it’s almost too hot to walk the Camino now and would certainly be near impossible in the summer. Anyway .. closed albergue and no free ‘refuge’ in a cupboard, means another night in a HOTEL. This one’s fairly up market.

The book says 20.7km – I think it’s more like 25km with the views an all.
