Day 3: Hospital De Orbigo – Astorga

Enjoy a short and not demanding day. Wandering over rolling hills.

When reaching the pretty hilltop city of Astorga visit its spectacular ‘pink’ cathedral. Built in1471 it now houses a museum. Also, the fabulous Episcopal palace designed by Antoni Gaudí, (the famous Catalan architect) is well worth a look as are the old city walls.

Astorga is well known for its famous chocolates and “Las Mantecadas (cupcakes) de Astorga”.
