You will normally expect any town on the camino of be on top of the hill or at least at ground level. Historically and practically it makes good sense. You can see your enemies advancing toward you from far away, and also the higher ground has strategic advantages in a battle. Hontanas however is the reverse.

It is well hidden in the valley. Only the church tower sticks out from the landscape.

The road to Hontanas.

Town with 2 albergues and a hostal. Very pilgrim friendly.

The owner of this house create strange sculptures out of wood and metal.

Final view in the morning the next day.
