Stage 15 // Carrión de los Condes – Terradillos de los Templarios [26,3km]
Monday morning, the beginning of the third week. Pretty tired from an already long journay that is just in the mid point.
We start the week with quite a long way, but a beautiful one. Again, the clerical architecture and art are the stars in the way, with some nice places like San Zoilo (image) in Carrión de los Condes. In this area there are many tiny villages near from each other and it is easy to find a place to rest and ejoy the area. Just keep walking until Terradillos.
If you had time, the archaeology around is great, from Roman villas to abandoned monasteries… A pity we have to walk and attend CHAT 😉
Every week, Tracy performs in Sant Iago. You can see her videos on her YouTube channel. We will have the chance to speak with her on November 30.
This week’s videos:
Heavy Time charts the experience of a secular walker seeking the divine in the everyday. Walking old pilgrim routes and forging new ones, Sonia navigates her way to Walsingham via London and her home town of Ely. Her walk reverses the route of Chaucer’s pilgrims, from Canterbury to Southwark, takes in lengths of the ancient Peddars Way and faces the contemporary reality of walking main roads strung with traffic. Passing ancients chapels and suburban follies, Sonia collects roadside objects to carry as relics, seeking ‘thin places’ and considering the meeting of psychogeography and pilgrimage in the 21st century.
Sonia will read from the book, offer a provocation for walking and answer audience questions.
You can find a good offer on the book in the fair!
Join the session at 19:00 GMT with Sonia:
