Day 7! One week behind us,146 km walked with 654 km left to go but heck who's counting! Today we really stretched ourselves and added 8 more km to our original destination of Los Arcos and ended our day in Torres at an Albergue. The scenery once again was spectacular(eye candy) ....sorry ladies we were not referring to the men but those cyclers in their neoprene outfits aren't too hard to look at). On our descent from ...

Ubeda is a pleasant town and evidence that there’s more to interesting
architecture in Andalusia than just the legacy of the Moors.
