Camino de Santiago Map 8

Camino de Santiago Map 8

Here you leave La Rioja behind and enter into Castilla y León, the largest of Spain’s autonomous communities. It is comprised of nine provinces, of which you have just entered Burgos. Along the Camino Francés, you will also pass through Palencia and León before leaving Castilla y León. The other 6 provinces (Salamanca, Zamora, Valladolid, Avila, Segovia, and Soria) are all part of one camino or another as they cross central Spain.

Just like La Rioja, you will continue to pass through...

Redecilla is the first town in Castilla y León along the Camino Francés and was an important stop along the way during the 12th century, when two pilgrim hospices cared for pilgrims.  One of them, San Lázaro, lends its name to the municipal albergue.

The gem of Redecilla is the Romanesque baptismal font in the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Calle.

There is a tourist information office here, remarkable given the size of the town but easily explained by its location.

Feiertage: 

San Roque is celebrated on the 16th of August.

Small town with little more than a church, an ermita, and a truck stop restaurant with a reputation for serving up some decent hot chocolate.

Geschichte: 

The town gets its name from the born-here Francisco Delgado López, before that it was known as Villa de Pun. Francisco served as the Bishop of both Jaén and Lugo and was one of the most respected Counter-Reformation theologians at the Council of Trent.

Hinweis: 

Mind the traffic along the N-120 as you leave town.

This sleepy agricultural town is best known for being the cuña (birthplace) of Santo Domingo de la Calzada. History did not see fit to preserve his house but the font in which he was baptized remains in the church.

Sandwiches and beverages are available at the Parada Viloria albergue.

If you wish to stay in the albergue here, be advised that it is not in the village proper but rather set off from the main road a bit to the north.

Do not let the grandiose name of the village fool you, neither the town nor the river is remarkable.

Belorado manages to maintain some of its advantages, but hard times have certainly taken their toll. A walk around the perimeter streets will reveal a quickly crumbling infrastructure. On the hillside sit the remains of a castle.

Several churches remain and the hospices have been replaced by many modern albergues. The main square is a nice place to hide from the sun if you fancy a rest.

Do like the locals and avoid the restaurants in the main square; one of the best options for dinner is at the Cuatro Cantones albergue restaurant.

The Iglesia de Santa María...

Geschichte: 

After a long string of nearly abandoned villages, Belorado is something of a wonder. Once again we have geography to thank; Belorado sits right in the middle of a narrow pass that cuts through two hillsides. The difference in altitude is small, less than 200m, but the hills are...

Feiertage: 

The Fiesta of San Vitores is held on the 26th of August, and Thanksgiving is held on the first weekend in September. La Virgen de Belén is celebrated on the 25th of January.

In recent years, the diminutive Tosantos has grown up a bit and now has a bar. The albergue parroquial is somewhat unique and maintains a tradition of communal meals and singalongs.

The nearby Ermita de la Peña, built into the cliffs, is a must see. A statue of Jesus as a child was hidden there for protection during the 9th century. It now spends half the year in the ermita and the other half in the Iglesia de San Esteban. Ask there for the key. If you stay in the albergue here, the hospitalero will likely offer a guided visit.

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.

Hinweis: 

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

Feiertage: 

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.

Wegbeschreibung: 

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...

Wegbeschreibung: 

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...

The monastery has been partially rehabilitated into an albergue for pilgrims, and it is here that pilgrims were served garlic soup by the monks; a tradition that continued up to recent times. If you have never spent the night in a room full of pilgrims that have eaten garlic soup for dinner, you have not lived.

The church has been restored and is a popular place for weddings. Twice a year (the 20th of March and the 23rd of September, both equinoxes) at around 5pm, light shines through one of the windows to illuminate one of the capitals, moving from the Anunciation to the...

Geschichte: 

Contrary to popular belief, the village is not the birthplace of San Juan, he was born 20km away in the town of Quintanaortuño (north of Burgos). He was the disciple of Santo Domingo, and together they built many of the roads and bridges between here and Nájera...

Hinweis: 

Ignore the information board when leaving San Juan de Ortega. It is incorrect and may trick you into taking the wrong road to Castañares. Continue straight along the camino that heads back into the forest. 

Feiertage: 

The communities surrounding San Juan holds a romería (a small pilgrimage) to the church every 2nd of June.

A pleasant but small town with a quirky mix of albergues. Bar Alquimista is a friendly stop if you are passing through, and they do a decent dinner too.

Wegbeschreibung: 

Just outside of town, on your left-hand side and likely obscured by tall grass, sits one of San Juan de Ortega’s smaller engineering feats. It only takes one span to cross the diminutive río Vena.

For the better part of the last 3 decades excavations have been underway to learn more about our prehistory. In the caves outside of town, the remains of early humans have been discovered; some as old as 800,000 years. Most of the discoveries have been transferred to the Museum of Human Evolution in Burgos.

Geschichte: 

Atapuerca, its prolific prehistoric discoveries aside, remains a small outpost. It was here where King Garcia of Nájera-Pamplona lost his life in a battle against his brother Ferdinand I of León on September 1st, 1054. The large stone marker in the field before town that...
