Overland to Santiago de Compostela via Las Medulas and Lugo

This stretch of ride was so beautiful!! I could not stop taking pictures of the blue sky.

Romans used to mine gold in Las Medulas, and their engineering work changed the entire landscape of the mountain.  Amazing!

We had a nice hike, explored the caves, looked at the unique tree trunks, the flowers of the chestnut tree, the cherry tree, and a very nice lunch of BBQ ribs!

More ride and we then arrived Lugo, a UNESCO site, whose city is still completely surrounded by intact Roman walls.  Built in the 3rd century, the wall has ten gates and 71 towers.

 We did a little walk on the wall:
Finally we arrived Santiago de Compoatela!
