The Next Ten

If you are up to date on your reading I have covered a brief history of the camino and the fist ten days. If you have been reading I have changed this weeks format a little and will be bullet pointing points of interest for you scanners out there. 🙂
*Please note I will list the ending point of each day and any noteworthy parts which come before.

Belorado

  • Church of San Juan & bell tower – Granon
  • Virgen de la Calle Church – Redecilla – 12th century Romanesque Baptismal Font
  • Church of Santa Maria – Belorado – 16th century statues of St James, as the Moor slayer and as a pilgrim


San Juan de Ortega

This is a must stop for me just to say I have been there. My step-mom’s very good friend is named Mark Ortega and I would never hear the end of it if I did not stop. The refugio here is run by nuns who are rumored to be very strict. I have always wanted to meet strict nuns, just so I could say I had, and think this sounds fun.

  • Tosantos – Ermita de la Virgen de la Pena – built into the side of the hill.
  • Church of Santiago – Villafranca
  • The Monastery Church – San Juan

Burgos

A great place to take a rest day, Burgos is most famous for its beautiful cathedral.

  • Burgos Cathedral – a must
  • Church of San Nicolas Burgos
  • Convent of Las Huelgas

Castrojeriz

 
Another monastery, imagine that.

A long and hard day of walking, often without guaranteed water. Next major city is six days hence so buy required major supplies in Burgos.

  • Ruins of the Monastery at San Anton – stop for a drink or coffee it is great
  • Church of Nuestra Senora del Manzano – Statue of St James as a Pilgrim
  • Church of San Juan – Castrojeri
  • Formista

    Again water is sparse on this portion of the

    Camino and most travelers have become trail fit and can cover greater distances without difficulty.

    • Parish Church in Boadilla – 14th century baptismal font and Gothic cross outside
    • Church of San Martin – Fromista
    • Church of San Pedro – Fromista

    Carrion de los Condes

    Offering two routs, one easy and mared on a road and the other quite but largely unmarked. Most recommend the latter.

    • Ermita de San Miguel – Polblacion de Campos
    • Church of Santa Marie la Blanca – Villalcazar de Sirga – Spanish National Monument
    • Church of Santiago – Carrion de los Condes
    • Monastery of San Zoilo – Carrion de los Condes

    Sahagun


    • The Roman Road
    • Hermitage de Nuestra Senora del Puente – Just before Sahagun and the right of the way
    • Convent La Peregrina – Sahagun
    • Arco de San Benito – Sahagun
    • Church of San Lorenzo – Sahagun

    El Burgos Raneros

    A pilgrams path makes easy walking.

    • Hermitage Virgen del Peral – about 1km on the left before Bercianos
    • Iglesia del Salvador – Berciano

    El Burgos Raneros

    Not much to say from anyone abou this stretch.

    • Church of Santa Maria – Mansilla

    Leon

    Day 20 ends with one of the largest cities on The Camino.

    • Leon Cathedral
    • Hostel de San Marcos – Leon
