Alto de la Pedraja | Wise Pilgrim Guidebooks for the Camino de Santiago
Alto de la Pedraja
To Santiago: 
518.40
Altitude: 
1150

The path here intersects with several ATV trails. It is well marked but still requires some attention. Like the river crossings in Navarra, the low scrubland that surrounds you here was a popular place for bandits to lay in wait.

A lovely new oasis has sprung up here at the hand of a pilgrim and artist who encourages you to add your own personal touch to the small forest rest stop. The hammocks are a welcome break too.

History: 

En route to the alto you will encounter a poorly kept monument dedicated to a group of men from Burgos whose bodies were dumped here after their execution during the Civil War.
