Stage 4: Caudete to Montealegre del Castillo 34km


Arrived at next bunk, after twenty something miles of no cafés, bars, or pastry opportunities. Tractors, vines and olives. Beginning to realise that, often along this route, what you carry is what you get. Not complaining, just be prepared. It’s a good path, away from roads and well signposted. Today a wide limestone plain over-looked for much of today by a hundred turbines along a high escarpment.

The sun came out and the sky turned blue, but it’s still chilly.

A brief nod to clints and grikes (remembering my school geography teacher) before heading into our new town, the old mayor in the bar, the lovely lady with the keys who met us by the town hall (Ayuntamiento – a word worth remembering!), and our albergue.
