To end of camino: 
522.00
Altitude: 
942

To the right of the main road when entering are a pair of bars that serve food to a mix of pilgrims and long road truck drivers, the Meson Alba being the most authentic dive of the two.

Notice: 

From Villafranca, there are 12km of camino without a water supply. 

Fiesta: 

San Antón is celebrated on the 17th of January, and a Romería to the Ermita de Oca is held on the second Sunday of August.

The Road: 

Villafranca Montes de Oca, named for the nettle-filled mountains to the west, sits at the foot of the Pedraja pass. If you have become accustomed to the gently rolling hills behind you, brace yourself for a climb. Between here and San Juan de Ortega lay 12km of fountain-less and featureless hiking. There are no shops in San Juan, but a bar there does serve food. Pack accordingly. To follow the camino, turn right uphill towards the church.

Nice little town. I took a “walking rest day” from Belorado. Slept in, super late start, and I still got into Villafranca quite early. I stayed at Casa Rural La Alpargateia. Charming place, great hot shower, clean, and the owner Christina is super welcoming and helpful.

Especially the first kilometres through flower-filled forest ~ it’s far from ‘featureless.’
