Surely we have heard about the Cantar del Mío Cid or Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, the famous Cid Campeador. This song tells the story of this famous 12th century knight, his adventures and exploits throughout Spain. From the same book, as they detail the places where he walked, a rather curious itinerary was created to be able to go through it as The Camino de Santiago. A trip to Spain following the episodes that appear in the book, passing through the lands of Castilla y León, Castilla La Mancha, Aragón and the Valencian Community. The Way of the Cid.
This Spanish knight was born in Burgos, specifically in Vivar del Cid, the town from which this route will start until it reaches the territory he conquered from the Muslims in Alicante, precisely in Orihuela. It is a historical and literary route that will take us through places that have been declared World Heritage Sites as well as points that coincide with the Camino de Santiago along the French route.
