Today you will leave the province of Burgos behind to travel through the moors of Palencia. This is a slightly longer stage than the previous ones, with endless straights and stretches close to the road, a landscape in which the humble beauty of the adobe villages stands out. As on previous days, it is necessary to go out with food and water, as there are many places to stock up, and, especially in the summer months, the sun can cause problems.
The monumental complex of the town of Frómista in Palencia is a treasure worth visiting. One of the village’s great treasures is the Romanesque church of San Martín de Tours, founded around 1066 by Doña Mayor, widow of King Sancho of Navarre. A visit to the Church of Santa María del Castillo is also a must, founded on the site of a castle that is now home to a spectacular museum called Vestigia, Leyenda del Camino, which combines heritage and new technologies.
