The Camino from Logrono to Burgos

The Camino from Logrono to Burgos, a section of the Camino Frances, on the most famous Camino de Santiago route, starts in Logroño, capital of the famous La Rioja wine region. Explore this fantastic city and treat yourself to the most delicious ‘tapas’ in the lively Calle del Laurel before you start your journey. The city is also home to many artisan ice cream makers so you are in for another treat!

September is a wonderful time to do the Camino from Logrono with the Fiesta de la Vendimia Riojana, the Rioja Grape Harvest Festival.

This is a great Camino for wine lovers and foodies alike as the towns along this section of the Camino offer a wonderful selection of fresh Spanish produce and home-grown wines.

This is the perfect Camino for those that would like to experience the Camino Frances on slightly easier terrain and enjoying delicious food and wine treats as you go – you will deserve it after your walk!

Walking the Camino from Logrono

The terrain becomes easier than in the previous stages of the Camino. You will walk across undulating farmland and vineyards, passing castles, monasteries, and charming medieval villages.

One of the highlights of this section of the Camino is the town of Santo Domingo de la Calzada with its historic centre, an important stop for pilgrims on the Camino since the Middle Ages.

You will finish your Camino walk in majestic Burgos, home of ‘El Cid’ and considered by many the Gothic capital of Spain.

In Burgos, you shouldn’t miss the magnificent cathedral, possibly the most beautiful Gothic building in the country, and experience the local ‘tapas’ scene in the old town.
