Cruz de Ferró y Molinaseca

Left before dawn to reach the Cruz de Ferro (the Iron Cross) by sunrise. This is an important spot on the Camino. The Iron Cross was originally erected in the 11th century. Many Pilgrims carry a rock that represents their journey. They leave the rock at the Cruz de Ferro to leave behind their worry or guilt or fear. It was a meaningful experience for me.

The Cruz de Ferro is one of the highest points on the Camino. The views are outstanding. The 900meter decent was not enjoyable to walk. It was very rocky with loose stones and steep passages.

We were rewarded with a refreshing lunch by this Roman bridge in Molinaseca where I will spend the night.
