Las Herrerias

We travelled more than 150km to end up at Las Herrerias at the foot of O Cebreiro, a journey that would have taken us 10 days to walk at our leisurely pace. We had gone from a busy urban centre to a tranquil rural environment. We cut across the Montes de Leon (the mountains of Leon ), through mountains and deep valleys and bypassing the string of villages and towns like Astorga, Foncebadon and Rabanal that we walked through 2 years ago. The views were  perhaps better from the bus given the higher elevation  though of  course they were only fleeting.
