Distance: 21 Km

Day 5.- Belorado - San Juan de Ortega 25 Km

The following stage passes through several interesting monuments such as the Virgen de la Peña Church, carved out of the rock as well as some nicely located castle ruins.

Distance: 25 Km

San Juan de OrtegaBelorado
Day 6.- San Juan de Ortega - Burgos 26 Km

Today you enter the unpopulated plateau where you only be accompanied by your own shadow and if you're lucky, some other pilgrim that you find along the Camino.  You will discover scenery and almost medieval towns that have become embedded in the legend of the Camino  since its beginning.

Distance: 31 Km

Day 8.- Hontanas - Fromista 32 Km

This day, without tree coverage from the elements - be it the summer sun, the penetrating winter cold or the uncomfortable wind - what will stay etched in your mind will be the walk under the arches of San Antón, the visit to the Castrojeriz and the later climb to the Teso de Mostelares. From this hill the extensive "Tierra de Campos" opens up to the pilgrim, a region proud of its grain, pigeon flocks and valuable art.

NOTE: The stages of today and tomorrow can be divided in 3 if the distance seemss too long to you.

Distance: 32 Km

Day 9.- Fromista - Carrion de los Condes 19 Km

In this stage the flatness of the land and monotony of a walk take over as the walker passes through the nucleus of the countryside. In the final leg you will find yourself in Santa María la Blanca Church- a stronghold attributed to the Templars.

Distance: 19 Km

Day 10.- Carrion de los Condes - Moratinos 28 Km

MoratinosCarrion de los Condes
Day 11.- Moratinos - Burgo Ranero 25 Km

The route continues through unending fields until you reach Sahagún, an important pilgrimage stop, with points of interest like monasteries, churches and a fantastic Roman bridge.

Grain, corn, sunflowers and numerous other crops provide striking color during this flat stage. Although initially the general scenery may appear a little boring, be sure to be on the look out as this is a wonderful place to see eagles and storks and much more. The route passes through several typical towns that probably wouldn't exist if it weren't for El Camino.

Distance: 25 Km

Day 12.- El Burgo Ranero - Mansilla 19 Km

Today a tree lined path will take you to Reliegos y Mansilla. On the way you will see many cellars that appear as caves carved out of the hills. These were traditionally used to mature the wine, but today these traditional cellars are far from modern wine manufacturing, hence many of them are now used for restaurants or private gatherings places where friends and family meet. Examples of this are found in the small town of Reliegos.

Distance: 19 Km

MansillaEl Burgo Ranero
Day 13.- Mansilla - León 19 Km

Today you will arrive in León. The first few kilometres after Mansilla are fairly nice although later they are followed by a walk throughthe industrial area of León (for which reason some chose to take the bus at this point).

Once you have reached Leon, and catch your first sight of the Cathedral you will know that every step of the journey so far has been worth it.

This old Roman capital is one of the main towns of the pilgrimage. In 910 León was the capital of the kingdom that later became the Spain, the country, that we know today. The medieval importance of this city is reflected in numerous monuments such as the Cathedral, San Marcos and the Basilica San Isidoro where several kings of historical importance are buried and where the much sought after Holy Grail is believed by many historians to be housed. 
The town is filled with tapas bars and inviting places and observe sore-footed pilgrims walking around with the hope of finally reaching Santiago during this journey or the next.

Distance: 19 Km
