A few days ago, we chose our stones for La Cruz de Ferro. La Cruz de Ferro is an iron cross located on the Camino Frances between the towns of Foncebadón and Manjarín. Pilgrims leave a stone from their hometown at the foot of the cross.

Why do pilgrims leave a stone at La Cruz de Ferro? The girls and I explain the reasoning in the video below.
Off we go now! Time to shoulder our packs and enjoy the fresh air.
