Camino Francés > Burgos-León > Burgos - Castrojeriz (40,3 Km)

In this day we begin to see what we are going to find in Castilla. We left Burgos towards Villalbilla and we reach Tardajos and then to Rabé de las Calzadas. From there, we enter an endless flatland with the only company of your own shadow. It´s normally very hot in summer and freezing in winter. In the end, we descend into the valley to reach Hornillos del Camino and the final part of this stage in Hontanas. Remember to bring enough water to face these long desert parts. We leave Hontanas to reach, through a gravel path, to the ruins of the old convent of San Anton. This Gothic temple dates from the fourteenth century and belonged to the order of the Antonianos. We passe under its arches and continue our way to Castrojeriz.
