Camino de Santiago from Burgos

The Camino de Santiago from Burgos departs from the Gothic capital of Spain and ends in the interesting Mudéjar town of Sahagún. The tour takes place along the Castilian plateau, characterized by its immense plains, making it an ideal route for all those who do not want to cross great slopes.

On the stages that separate the city of Burgos from Sahagún, the almost infinite straights and the huge expanses of cereal crops make up ochre landscapes that seem to be have taken from the world of dreams. Surrounded by this environment, you can visit three provinces of Castilla: Burgos, Palencia and León.

El Camino from Burgos is an exciting route in which, in addition to enjoying nature, you can visit picturesque agricultural villages. Throughout the tour, numerous buildings and monuments of various styles (Gothic, Romanesque, Mudéjar, etc.) will come across your path.
