Day 3 past Eauze to past Nogaro

We just stopped in Nogaro for lunch and might be able to get Internet here. So maybe we can post a quick blog. All going good. The trek today has been vey much like the last couple days - country roads, sometimes muddy dirt paths through lots of greenery. Few towns along the way.

Few churches today. Stopped at Eglise Hopital Saint Christe, formerly belonging to the order of the Knights of Malta. The church was supposed to be locked because the guidebook says it's in dangerous condition, but it was open.

We only passed one stone cross so far. It was a discoidal cross leading to the town of Nogaro, which takes its name from Nogarium (a place planted with walnuts), established in the eleventh century. Nogaro has a Romanesque church with former hospital Saint Jacques nearby.

May not have more Internet today but we still have more kilometers ahead to walk this afternoon.

  1. Sounds like you are off to a good start- hope feet toes etc are behaving themselves. Learned a new word- Nogarium!
