San Juan de Ortega

The weather was cold when I arrived at San Juan de Ortega.

The place is a bit disproportionate. Big church but no town other than a row of houses alongside the church.

Many old artifacts inside the church.

Some soup (sopa de Ajo) served by Father Jose Maria after mass. I heard from a friend who told me he had a full meal at San Juan de Ortega from Father Jose Maria, but that was 16 years ago when there were less people walking the camino. Still, this is one of the special moments in my camino sharing the soup with other pilgrims.

Ah... perfect for a cold day. You can find the soup recipe here.
