Redemption on the Via Francigena

Walking the Via Francigena from Viterbo to Rome was one of the highlights of my trip.

Less well known and less well signed than the Spanish Camino, to walk the Via Francigena is a much quieter and solitary journey. Even on a quiet pilgrimage though, you can feel the spirits of the pilgrims who have walked before you.

Their spirits are especially palpable when they leave notes for you:

I spotted this sign just outside Capranica.

…and this follow-up a kilometre later.

The Via Francigena…It changes people.
