Another wonderful walk passing through Arnad early and enjoying the tranquility of the 11th Century Romanesque Church of St. Martin de Tours.
Shortly after leaving Arnad we crossed a bridge that reminded me of the bridge in Puente La Reina on Camino Frances.
Then in Bard we ran into our two young Italian friends and we hiked up together to the top of the Fortress of Bard.
Here Napolean’s surprise invasion of Italy was delayed by 14 days by 400 men armed with 20 cannon.
We had a laugh when near the top we came across big statues of The Hulk, Ironman, and Captin America. Evidently they filmed part of Avengers II here.
Just before Pont St. Martin we walked under the incredible Roman Arch in Donnas.
We continued on to the small hillside village of Carema where we stayed right on the VF at Casa La Foriana offering a balcony with a view of the valley below.
