Can’t Miss Camino Sights: The Fountain of Wine

August 9, 2010

You’re tired, your feet are sore, and a long hill climb is coming… and then it happens. You’ve heard rumors about it, but you never quite believed it, yet there it is: a fountain of wine. A free fountain of wine. You dump your water, replace it with wine, and know that this day on the Camino is going to be a good day.

About an hour past Estella, next to the Museo del Vino, the wine fountain lies in plain site next to the path on the Camino Frances route. Is the wine good? Not particularly. But it is wine, and that was good enough for me. As far as I’m concerned, free alcohol makes the Fuente de Vino a Can’t Miss Camino Sight. Pics below.

7am may not be the best time for wine

Lest you walk past this small Camino miracle

The wine museum itself was closed, but Spain is chock-full of random gastrointestinal museums. See for yourself…

Willy Wonka's got nothing on this

This would definitely be called a "MuseeHAM" in the U.S.

    Ahh yes, those lovely hams with the little feet attached…the best I’ve ever eaten.

    If you like ham, Spain is definitely the place for you!
