Day 5 - Gernika-Lumo

Walked from 8am to 5:30pm just covering 24 km. I don't think the guide took the twists and turns into consideration.

This town was bombed and level in 1937 by Hitler during the Spanish Civil war. Picasso's mural Guernica with the crying bull and disjointed limbs is his reaction to this act. With probably the exception of the church on the hill above, every building here is rebuilt after '37.
