Remarks

Our trip on the Camino Franches backwards in 2019. We left Santiago di Compostela by bus to Astorga and started there with our bicycles. We went until Pamplona and then took the train to Donostia / San Sebastian to close our cycle tour.
It was not so easy to organise the trip by train and we had to change trains once in Araira, a very small town. You find more description in the description of the last tours.

Hospital de Órbigo ist eine Gemeinde (Municipio) am Jakobsweg in der Provinz León der Autonomen Gemeinschaft Kastilien-León.

Im Mittelalter gab es bereits ein kleines Dorf am linken Ufer des Flusses Río Órbigo Wikipedia Icon. Diese Dorf das sich rund um die Kirche Santa Maria gebildet hatte wurde nach der Brücke Puente de Órbigo benannt. Ende des sechzehnten Jahrhunderts entstand eine weitere Siedlung auf der rechten Uferseite des Flusses in der Nähe des alten Pilgerweges Camino Francés. Dort errichtete der Souveräne Ritter- und Hospitalorden vom Heiligen Johannes zu Jerusalem ein Krankenhaus (span. Hospital) und der Ort erhielt den Namen Hospital de Órbigo.

Berühmt wurde die Brücke Puente de Orbigo durch ein Ereignis während des Heiligen Jahres 1434, den sogenannten Paso Honroso des leonesischen Ritters Suero de Quinones.
