General information

Santo Domingo de la Calzada is a small town located in the region of La Rioja, declared a historic site and has 6,700 inhabitants.

You will leave this village through its beautiful old town. Passing the bridge over the Oja river, built in the 18th century, you will come across the hermitage of El Puente, built in 1917.

The Cathedral of Santo Domingo de la Calzada is another of the constructions that you will find in this town. It is a mainly Gothic work built on the original Romanesque church of Santo Domingo.



The French Way closely follows the N120 road for most of the day, but occasionally deviates into villages and crosses fields and farm tracks.

The route is fairly easy to walk, with gravel paths along the road and rough roads as you turn away from the N120. But, as usual on the Camino, you will encounter many ups and downs.

This trip begins in Santiago Domingo taking the main street and crossing the bridge over the Oja River. This bridge was built by Santo Domingo and is a beautiful place. Further on, you will pass through Viloria de Rioja, his birthplace.

The first climb is a bit tough, but it doesn't take long to reach Grañón. Then the route descends steeply. You will cross the border between La Rioja and Castilla about 2 km after Grañón while walking through corn fields and farmland.

The first village you will cross within Castilla y León is Redecilla del Camino. You will continue to Villamayor del Río by a road parallel to the national road to finally reach Belorado. In this town you will have all the amenities you need.
