Camino De Santiago - Pictures - Atapuerca To Burgos

You would think that being in Burgos almost three days would mean a lot of pictures.  I did take quite a few  but not as many as I could have.  I was limited by the amount of time I spent in the hotel room with my foot up.

An intricate Gothic spire of the Burgos Cathedral of the Virgin Mary.
The albergue door.  My pack is the black one on the left with the shell - second in line.
The colorful Plaza Mayor in Burgos.  They actually had places to sit down -
rare in most cities I was in unless you were willing to buy something at a bar or restaurant.
I loved this tree lined street.  The Gate of Saint Mary is at the end.
A tribute to the GrandFather-in-Law
Santiago Matamoros - Saint James, Killer of Moors.
I always thought Saint James' two incarnations, pilgrim and killer, did not fit together.
El Cid
My hotel, Mesón del Cid.  My room is the dormer window on the top floor.
Note the Cathedral Steeple - the hotel was across the plaza from the Cathedral.
These pictures and quite a few more from Burgos have been added to my 2011 Camino de Santiago Google Photos album.
