This pilgrimage varies from the beautiful vineyard covered hills and coniferous forests in La Rioja to the vast plains of Castille. In this stretch there are numerous small villages that have survived centuries, thanks to the Camino de Santiago. If you have time and desire in your schedule, you can visit the famous Monasteries Suso and Yuso, which are on UNESCO's List of World Heritage Sites. And, if you stay an extra night in Logroño, you will have time to inspect some of the world's oldest dinosaur footprints and explore the old fortification and surrounding wine villages that characterize the Rioja region. Moreover, on this Camino route is an interminable chain of impressive cathedrals, ancient monasteries and hundreds of small idyllic churches.
This part of the route is characteristic for having fewer hikers than the route after León, which gives it a special charm. From Burgos to León the route is relatively flat and the stages are generally a little longer, but most can be divided into smaller segments, while from Logroño to Burgos the land is a little bumpier, although still considerably easy. The climate in this zone is warmer and drier than before Logroño and after León. Therefore, the season to do this route is a little longer. We recommend this route from early March to mid-November.
On this pilgrimage you will complete stage 8 to 20 of the 33 stages to Santiago.
