The Burgos town of Hornillos del Camino has a close link with the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, latent even in its own name. The very structure of the village makes it clear that the Camino is one of its main arteries and the one that gives life to the village. It is a clear example of a village-road, with a central street that crosses the entire urban nucleus and from which only a few small streets deviate.
History tells us that in this place During the IX century, there was a defensive line of fortress towers that protected the old Castile. Also, it is known that in its beginnings this town had an important number of furnaces to bake tiles and therefore it was known as “Forniellos”.
