Castrojeriz to Fromista
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.
