→ 5.40 → Hontanas → 5.70km → San Antón - The Ruins
The town of Hontanas derives its name from the numerous natural springs, fontanas, that are to be found here.
If you spend enough time here you are bound to bump into a retired sheep farmer named Victorino who rather horrifically entertains pilgrims by drinking wine poured onto his forehead from the spout of a glass porrón (a glass wine jug with a long tapered spout).
While you could imagine it running down his face, over his nose, and more or less managing to find a path to his mouth, nothing prepares you for the actual spectacle of it.
San Roque is celebrated on the 16th of August.
