Here are some pictures of the retreat I've had days ago in a house near the village of Urritza, about 26 km away from Pamplona, going towards San Sebastian
|what greater way to situate a retreat house than on the crossroads of a "busy" road.|
Isn't that descriptive of a retreat: be at the crossroads?
|The front of the retreat house (o casa de convivencias, as they name it here.|
The architecture is typical of this northern Spanish region.
|The topmost floor. Our room is on the right side, looking at the picture.|
I was made to share the room with two others. This is definitely the last time
that I am going to share a room with
anybody else during a retreat..
|The tiles are quite cool...|
|Evidently, the Chapel|
|Down the pathway outside the house there is a stream...|
and a bridge, naturally..
|The highway passes over the private pathway |
that eventually leads to a soccer field
|The stream/bathing hole.|
|a view of the house from the bridge.|
|another view of the brook|
|from the Archdiocese of Palo (Philippines).|
