Day 12 - To Mogro

Was lucky that I bumped into Anton whose German guide mentioned a shortcut with the river crossing via the railroad track. As you can see that is not official. However it is safe enough and it took out 7 km from the journey without having to go further down to the car/pedestrian bridge.

Hats off to the medieval pilgrims that walked this way. It must have been so dangerous for them before the Camino Frances was available. Before the 11th century, the coastal way is their only option as further south are still being occupied by the moors.
