| Monte Boa Vista was the first night
stay. It is in Portel. 30 m km south from Evora.
I have been there before, so found it relatively easy. After I had checked

following night at a small town called Brozas in Extremadura. I have used
this hotel several times now. It is called Hotel Sostenible la laguna. i

| Normally from here I drive to Ovido, but I wanted to try
something else, and made a route to Torrevenga close to Santander. I found
a hotel,la Casona de Dona Petra,in a very small town.Villarmentero de
Campos. Population 12 persons. The house is believed
to be an old hospital along the Camino de Santiago. After booking in, I
walked 3 km along the camino.
The following day I arrived at Oyambre San Vicente de Barquera and found
my old lodging Hotel Granada. I was in the water surfing same afternoon.
