Day 1 : Arrival in Burgos
Day 1 : Arrival in Burgos

We start our journey in Burgos, one of the main capitals of the Jacobean tradition, a city that was the medieval capital of the Kingdom of Castilla y León. We highly recommend a visit to its magnificent Gothic Cathedral. Arrival in Burgos on behalf of the client.

Accommodation in Burgos

Day 2 : Burgos - Hornillos del Camino (21 km ~ 5 hours)
Day 2 : Burgos - Hornillos del Camino (21 km ~ 5 hours)

Difficulty level: medium.

Despite the fact that we have already entered the Castilian plateau and the sections that await us are flat and apparently comfortable, the climatic difficulties now arise somewhat, as the temperatures in summer are usually very high, there are only a few shady spots and in winter the temperatures are very low. The weather conditions are rewarded by medieval towns that we find along the way.


Accommodation in Hornillos del Camino.

Day 3 : Hornillos del Camino - Castrojeriz (19.9 km ~ 5 hours)
Day 3 : Hornillos del Camino - Castrojeriz (19.9 km ~ 5 hours)

Difficulty level: medium.

The profile of this stage is similar to the previous one, in which we must take into account the climatic difficulties of the Castilla fields with high temperatures in the summer months, which make the hike difficult. The last kilometers of the section are on the road. In Castrojeriz we can visit the Santa María del Manzano Collegiate Church and its interesting museum of sacred art.


Accommodation in Castrojeriz.

Day 4 : Castrojeriz - Frómista (24.7 km ~ 6 hours)
Day 4 : Castrojeriz - Frómista (24.7 km ~ 6 hours)

Difficulty level: medium.

When we leave Castrojeriz, we find the Mostelares, with a height difference of 145 meters on less than two kilometers. This will be the biggest challenge of this stage, but it offers us a wonderful view of the entire plateau. The end of the stage will be in one of the capitals of the Jacobean tradition and the capital of the Romanesque Palencia, the city of Frómista.


Accommodation in Frómista.

Day 5 : Frómista - Carrión de los Condes (19 km ~ 5 hours)
Day 5 : Frómista - Carrión de los Condes (19 km ~ 5 hours)

Difficulty level: easy.

Very flat stage that crosses the plateau and poses no difficulties. We will drive through the town of Villalcázar de Sirga, where we must visit the monument of Mesonero, which has regained the tradition of the Way of St. James and Jacobean gastronomy, as well as the church of Santa María La Blanca. In Carrión de los Condes, a visit to the San Zoilo monastery is essential.


Accommodation in Carrión de los Condes.

Day 6 : Carrión de los Condes - Calzadilla de la Cueza (17 km ~ 4 hours)
Day 6 : Carrión de los Condes - Calzadilla de la Cueza (17 km ~ 4 hours)

Difficulty level: easy.

We are now on the stage of the French route, on which we will find the fewest stops, although we will hike on Via Aquitaine, the Roman road XXXIV or the Asturica Burdigalam (Astorga-Bordeaux).


Accommodation in Calzadilla de la Cueza.

Day 7 : Calzadilla de la Cueza - Sahagún (22 km ~ 5 hours)
Day 7 : Calzadilla de la Cueza - Sahagún (22 km ~ 5 hours)

Difficulty level: medium.

When we leave Calzadilla de la Cueza, we find a short climb of about two kilometers. We will also hike through small valleys and cross the Valderaduey river once we are in the province of León. We end the trip in the city of Sahagun in Mudéjar, one of the most unique on the Camino de Santiago, where the churches of San Tirso and San Lorenzo stand out.


Accommodation in Sahagún.

Day 8 : Sahagún - El Burgo Ranero (17.7 km ~ 4 hours)
Day 8 : Sahagún - El Burgo Ranero (17.7 km ~ 4 hours)

Accommodation in El Burgo Ranero

Day 9 : El Burgo Ranero - Mansilla de las Mulas (19 km ~ 5 hours)
Day 9 : El Burgo Ranero - Mansilla de las Mulas (19 km ~ 5 hours)

Difficulty level: easy.

Very flat stage that runs practically straight. We walk on comfortable dirt roads and through a forest area that offers us a pleasant shade, especially in the summer months. We will hardly find populations between the two points. In Mansilla de las Mulas we can relax on the banks of the Esla river.


Accommodation in Mansilla de las Mulas.

Day 10 : Mansilla de las Mulas - León (18.5 km ~ 5 hours)
Day 10 : Mansilla de las Mulas - León (18.5 km ~ 5 hours)

Difficulty level: easy.

So this stage ends in one of the capitals of the Way of St. James
It runs near roads with more traffic than the previous ones. The Portillo hill with its wonderful view will anticipate our arrival in the city. Once in León, a visit to the cathedral, Gaudí's Casa Botines and the Hospital de San Marcos are a must. A walk through the old town and a stop in the Barrio l Humedo are also highly recommended, in order to fortify yourself with delicious tapas after the hike.
