To reach the Mount of Forgiveness, it’s an uphill battle in an open windy country side. The sign says 4.3 km of steady incline.
From the distance I can see the electricity wind generators, in short windmills. towering the sky.
The ascent to be forgiven offered a rewarding sight as we steadily climbed up. The view offers vast farming land with different shades of earth. The panorama shows an expressive Spanish landscape of the country side.
I’ve counted over a dozen of gigantic windmills and the turbine whirling louder as I get closer. Once on top, a metal sculpture of pilgrims on foot and on horse reveals the nature of the walk.
We were not the only group on top for many have passed here before as depicted on the sculpture and many will still come.
“Where the path of the stars meets the path of the wind”.
