We leave Santo Domingo de la Calzada to Burgos. The first village you will reach will also be the one which says you goodbye from La Rioja to get into Castilla y Leon. Like that, two kilometers far from Grañón and between oak fields, a signal will welcome you to this community where a big part of el Camino will be spent. Your first steps will be through grain fields and farmland. This is the landscape in a not difficult stage, with flat ground and without sharp uphill and downhill roads. From here, you will see small villages every 3 kilometers until you arrive to the fortified town of Belorado. A perfect time for a coffee!
Belorado is one of those towns with a large Jacobean tradition and a perfect place to rest, but I am sure that after these 20 kilometers you want to try the food of Castilla, right?
