    Walking the Camino Frances from Burgos to Sahagun map

    French Way 4/8 Day 1Day 1 - Burgos - Start of your journey

    Burgos, which was the capital of the unified kingdom of Castilla-Leon for five centuries, boasts a masterpiece of Spanish Gothic architecture; the Cathedral of Burgos (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). Apart from a visit to the historic quarter, you can take quite an interesting walk along the banks of the Duero and Arlanza rivers. Discover the delicious and varied local cuisine in one of the city's restaurants

     

    French Way 4/8 Day 2Day 2 - Burgos To Hornillos del Camino (5h15,21km)

    From Burgos you will go through the crop fields that are typical of the region. You will pass through some small woods of Holm oak and conifers, which serve as a memory of the time when one of the largest forests in Europe existed on these lands.

     

    French Way 4/8 Day 3Day 3 - Hornillos del Camino to Castrojeriz (5h,19km)

    You will resume your walk towards Castrojeriz. Upwards to another plateau and then descending towards the valley of the River Bol. Today is a pleasant day spent between pasture and crop fields.

     

    French Way 4/8 Day 4Day 4 - Castrojeriz to Fromista (6h30,25km)

    After Castrojeriz, situated on the hillside between the valleys of the rivers Odrilla and Pisuerga, is Alto Mosterales - the highest point of the Meseta, and the last plains of the Burgos Region. The river Pisuerga brings you into the province of Palencia and on into the "Tierra de Campo". Don't miss Boadilla and its 14th-century church "La Asuncion", reputed for its Gothic pillory and beautifully carved baptismal font.

     

    French Way 4/8 Day 5Day 5 - Fromista to Carrion de los Condes (5h,20km)

    Although this stage of the Camino passes through areas that have been heavily influenced by man, we follow the charming banks of the river Uciesa, under the shade of the trees. Today, the Camino takes a relatively straight trajectory. Numerous rest areas have been set out along the path. Passing Villalxazar de Sirga, you will come across a good example of a Campos village; few houses and inhabitants, but an impressive church full of treasures.

     

    French Way 4/8 Day 6Day 6 - Carrion de los Condes to Calzadilla de la Cueza (4h45,17km)

    For 13km you will follow the historical "Aquitana Camino" (another famous Camino to Santiago which begins in Bayonne, France) through isolated countryside, passing poplar woods and crossing over several irrigation channels.

     

    French Way 4/8 Day 7Day 7 - Calzadilla de la Cueza to Sahagun (5h30,22km)

    Expect hilly terrain as you cross some "cuezas", or little valleys. This part of the Camino leaves the road and heads through oak woods, before coming back to familiar cereal fields and crossing the river Valderaduey on your way to the countryside of Leon. In Sahagun, the church of San Lorenzo is certainly worth a look.
