The Camino de Santiago: Burgos to León


The central section of the great pilgrim route, the Camino de Santiago, cuts across the northern plains of Castilla y León, with the stretch from Burgos to León seen as one of the most rewarding – not for the walking, which can be flat and dull, but in terms of the art and architecture encountered along the way. From Burgos the camino runs south of the main road, via Castrojeriz and, more importantly, Frómista, before running up to Carrión de los Condes and Sahagún, the latter two towns both on the A231 Burgos–León road. With a car, rather than a rucksack and boots, there are also a couple of possible short detours off the main road to see the Roman remains on either side of Carrión de los Condes.
