On this tour you will be walking the Camino from Burgos, this section (section 4) takes you across the vast and wide-open spaces of the Meseta and to pretty medieval villages such as Castrojeriz and Carrion de los Condes. Burgos is home to one of the best examples of gothic architecture in the world – the Burgos Cathedral declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1984.
In addition, for history lovers, we advise a visit to the Burgos castle from where you can take in the picturesque views of the city and its surroundings.
As well as being home to medieval buildings and stunning gothic architecture, Burgos is famed for its gastronomy. In fact, Burgos was named as the “Gastronomic Capital of Spain” in 2013.
We highly recommend visiting some of the local tapas restaurants in the city centre for some delicious and memorable feasts!
Walking the Camino from Burgos
The sounds of nature and endless crop fields will be your companions for this section of the Camino de Santiago, dotted with hamlets, picturesque sleepy villages and Romanesque churches.
You will finish this Camino from Burgos (section 4) in the elegant city of León, where you can admire the cathedral, the remains of its Roman walls, the Romanesque Royal Basilica of Saint Isidoro and the neo-Gothic Casa de Botines, built by Gaudí.
After walking all day, indulge and treat yourself to the exquisite cheeses and cured meats of the region.
If you have limited time to walk the Camino, walking the Camino from Burgos to Leon in 10 days is a nice option.
Caminoways offers a choice of routes, provides extensive directions, arranges good accommodations and even transports your luggage. All you have to do is walk, and enjoy. This was our fourth year of doing the Camino de Santiago with Caminoways, and we plan to continue with them until we complete the walk all the way to Santiago. They are responsive, friendly and helpful. Accommodations are always clean, safe and comfortable, even if sometimes a bit Spartan in the smaller villages. I highly recommend Caminoways.
