Hornillos del Camino


Arroyo San Bol


There is a pilgrim mass and benediction every day at 18:00. Hornillos is one of the best examples of a “Royal” camino road: in this case one long street (the aptly named calle real) stretched out along the camino. This layout allowed every building to face the camino, a trait which reminds us that the current heavy development along the camino is anything but a new phenomenon. The town once belonged to the monastery of St. Denis and was home to a Benedictine community.

Folklore places Charlemagne here too, baking bread for his troops along the river.

Ruins and medieval bridges are the only visible remains.


Camino de Sant…

I needed a rest and splurged on a private room with en suite bathroom and shower (35 euros). Lovely!

I hurt my leg and stopped by the shop. The owner really took good care of me. He brought me tissues, helped me to clean the wounds. He even brought me a bottle of ice to prevent the swelling.
He really is one of those Camino Angels

At the far end of town there is a new bar called Origen. The owner is super friendly. There is a fireplace to dry your clothes. Great place to stop. The food looks good but I didn’t have any
