San Martin Fromista

Castrojeriz to Fromista
Day 20

When we arrived in Fromista, the church door was open, so we immediately went in. St. Martin Church was a lovely, pure Romanesque church.  James Michener wrote about his love for Romanesque and how he preferred it to Gothic. I wondered if this was the church he wrote about, but it wasn’t. He would have loved it.

Facing a 24 km leg, James’s feet hurting, and no bus service to/from an intermediate  town, we elected to take a taxi to Fromista. I ended up being very pleased with this decision since it allowed us to tour St. Martin’s, across the Plaza from our hotel. We had a lovely (too expensive) a la carte  lunch on the terrace facing the church. Lots of problems with the Internet. It is just not robust enough in these small towns to support lots of photographs, and I get tired of fighting it.

  1. Love reading YOU’RE BLOG. Eric set me up but glad you’re doing the walking instead of me. Spend 4 hours at Splashway on Wednesday with grandchildren and I’m still trying to recover. Joan


  2. I am amazed at the versatility & endurance you and James are both showing. The updates are very interesting & I really like the photos. This has put both of you in “another world” for the time being.

    1. Thanks for keeping up with us! We really are in another world. No TV and not much news. I love the history, art, and architecture. James is having foot problems, which we are going to have to get checked out since his foot doesn’t seem to be getting better.
