For many people, Los Arcos to Burgos is a continuation of the hourney they began in St Jean Pied de Port.
While it’s not the easiest of Camino sections, it’s still well within the reach of anyone starting from a low base – as long as you have done some preparation!
This week is a hidden gem on the Camino; you pass through a myriad of amazing towns and beautiful scenery; from Logroño, the capital of the La Rioja region all the way to the stunning ornate cathedral of Burgos.
It’s also week of peaceful walking and exploration; pass by the remains of Cesare Borgia in Viana (Machiavelli’s ‘Prince’) and learn of the legend of the rooster in Santo Domingo de la Calzada (oh by the way, you’ll be staying in a Parador here!).
So much to see and do, just a pity it’s only one week.
All our escorted walks are with an Irish guide – the emphasis is on having fun while experiencing the Camino at your own pace!
Walk 21km to Santo Domingo de la Calzada.
A welcome shorter stage after the previous 2 days, today is all about the end point.
Santo Domingo’s rooster story (not spilling the beans here!) is as quirky as you’ll find along the Camino – to this day a rooster is still kept at the back of the church here.
We are going all up-market and staying night in the Parador while we’re at it!
