French Route 4/8 - Walk From Burgos to Sahagun - 123km

Day 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
Meals included: none
Overnight in Burgos


Day 2: Burgos To Hornillos del Camino
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.
Distance: 21km  / approx. 5 hours (ascent: 120 m / descent: 240 m)
Meals included: Breakfast
Overnight in Hornillos del Camino


Day 3: Hornillos del Camino to Castrojeriz
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.
Distance: 19km  / approx. 5 hours (ascent: 140 m / descent: 170 m)
Meals included: Breakfast
Overnight in Castrojeriz


Day 4: Castrojeriz to Fromista
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.
Distance: 25km  / approx. 6.5 hours (ascent: 210 m / descent: 220 m)
Meals included: Breakfast
Overnight in Fromista


Day 5: Fromista to Carrion de los Condes
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.
Distance: 20km  / approx. 5 hours (ascent: 100 m / descent: 50 m)
Meals included: Breakfast
Overnight in Carrion de los Condes


Day 6: Carrion de los Condes to Calzadilla de la Cueza
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.
Distance: 17km  / approx. 5 hours (ascent: 50 m / descent: 20 m)
Meals included: Breakfast
Overnight in Calzadilla de la Cueza


Day 7: Calzadilla de la Cueza to Sahagun
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.
