The yellow arrows have a tendency to keep to the road as they take you through this small village. To see anything of importance, including the church and many of Sansol’s several old baroque homes, turn right at the large ceramic tile sign indicating “Sansol” on the side of one of the first buildings.

History

Named after San Zoilo, a young man martyred in Cordoba under the rule of Diocletian in 304AD.

Incidentally, his relics are preserved in the Benedictine Monasterio de San Zoilo in Carrión de los Condes. The local church here is likewise dedicated to him.

Worth a stop here for the lovely albergue Sansol - notably the garden, foot pool, and the Moroccan and vegetarian specialties available for the pilgrims meal. Torres del Rio is just 5 minutes away, but we felt Sansol was quiet and lovely.

Albergue privado Sansol and Palacio de Sansol are also open. The latter opened only a few weeks ago and is excellent
