Camino de Santiago Itinerary from Logroño
We will begin section 3 of the French Way in the capital of the La Rioja region, famous for its amazing wines. Before starting section 3 of the French Way we must visit Logroño’s historic center, its cathedral and the city’s churches. We also recommend heading over to Laurel Street and trying some of its delicious tapas. Logroño is also known for its delicious homemade ice creams.
From Logroño to Najerá – 23km
8h | +390m / -280m
Despite being a long route, this section is fairly easy. We will depart from Logroño passing through the ‘Puerta del Camino’ gate. During the first few hours of the day we will be able to see the vineyards of the La Rioja region. The first stop on this route will be in Navarrete, a 12th century town built by the “Knights of the Holy Sepulcher”. In Navarrete we can visit the Baroque Church of La Ascensión. We will continue to Nájera where we will spend the night. Nájera is a medieval city that has historically been connected to the Camino de Santiago. From Nájera we have the chance to get a beautiful panoramic view of the entire region.
From Najerá to Santo Domingo de la Calzada – 21km
6h | +275m / -132m
The third route will be significantly shorter than the previous one and we will get to enjoy incredible views the entire way. Once we leave the town of Nájera, we will make our way along rural paths until reaching the Sierra de la Demanda mountain. Then we will pass through the small town of Azofra. Azofra is dedicated to the patroness of La Rioja; the Virgen of Valvanera. Azofra is also known as the starting point for the “Route of the Monasteries”. The Route of the Monasteries is not actually part of the Camino de Santiago, but it is worth doing if we have a few extra days, especially visiting the monasteries of Yuso and Suso of San Millán de la Cogolla. Finally, we will arrive at Santo Domingo de la Calzada, a beautiful city with a medieval center that historically has been closely tied to the Camino de Santiago.
From Santo Domingo de la Calzada to Belorado – 24km
7h15 | +288m / -162m
The start of today’s route passes through forests until we reach farmland. As we approach Belorado, we can begin to catch a glimpse of the Oca mountains, these mountains are the last mountain range before reaching the Meseta (plateau). Then we will arrive at Belorado, a small and pleasant town in the province of Burgos. In Belorado we can visit the Church of Santa María where we can see images of Santiago.
From Belorado to San Juan de Ortega – 24,5km
7h15 | +255m / -169m
The walk from Belorado to San Juan de Ortega is a peaceful hike along quiet paths and nature trails. As we get closer to “Villafranca Montes de Oca”, we will start heading into beautiful forests of oak and pine trees. In San Juan de Ortega we have to visit the Mausoleum.
From San Juan de Ortega to Burgos – 16km
5h15 | +32m / -240m
The sixth route of section 3 of the French Way takes place on mountainous terrain in the Sierra de Atapuerca mountains, from where we can get excellent views of the entire region of Burgos. We will cross the town of Atapuerca, world famous for its prehistoric caves that have been classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The first human remains were discovered here in the Atapuerca caves. After beginning our descent, we will reach the outskirts of the city of Burgos, where we can visit one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Spain.
In Burgos we can visit the city’s historical center, enjoy a relaxing walk along the river or try some of the local tapas in the old town. Burgos is known in Spain as the country’s Gothic capital. We 100% recommend visiting the Burgos Cathedral.
