Day 06 - Uterga to Lorca

The weather today was absolutely stunning and we thoroughly enjoyed it. At one point we were offered the possibility of taking a detour to a little village called Eunate, where there is an octagonal 12th century church. As this involved only an extra 2.5km we decided to sample this pleasure! As it turned out it was closed but nice to see it no the less.
We passed through a small village called Obanos, with a magnificent Gothic church. We came across a brand new pelota court. Expense does not seem to be spared in this part of Spain. All along the way we kept seeing storks nesting on the top of churches and tall chimneys.
At 2.5km after Obanos we walked through the wonderful mediaeval town of Puente la Reina. This, "The Crossroads of the Ways", is a town where the two main routes on the Pilgrim's Way to Santiago de Compostela, the Camino Frances and the Via de la Plata, converge. It is one of the towns with the greatest affinity with the Compostela in Navarre. The wonderful narrow Rua Mayor was fascinating to walk along. The Church of Santiago had a statue of St. James inside and the Romanesque porch-way was decorated with scallop shells.
This is a very prolific wine growing area and vineyards were on either side of the path, providing magnificent views. At one stage we climbed up to a charming and picturesque hill top village called Cirauqui. Someone remarked that the wine here must be extremely good because there was evidence that the local population had drunk themselves to death, seeing as there was a cemetery right next to the vineyard!
The next 5km to Lorca we found quite tiring and were glad to find suitable beds quickly.
