General information

Castrojeriz is a fortified town since Celtic times, more than two thousand years ago. Subsequently, the hill was occupied by Romans, Visigoths, Moors and finally became part of Castile in 1131.

400 years ago, Castrojeriz was an important town because of its location on the Camino de Santiago. Many merchants flocked to the town, making it a center of commerce. However, the town's decline began when it sided with the losers in the War of the Communities of 1521.



The only difficult part of today's hike is near the start, where the Camino rises 200 meters. After that, it's an easy walk on undulating trails on a wide plain.

The route consists of quiet country roads and farm tracks between fields, with a first stage of just over 11 km without stops where you can drink. After crossing the Pisuerga River at San Nicolás, we enter the region of Palencia.

Itero de la Vega is only 1 km away. There you will find most of the services. From Itero to Boadilla it is 8 km again with nowhere to get water.

The canals are one of the main features of the landscape of the region of Castilla y León. The pilgrimage route to Fromista passes through one of the canal locks. Fromista is 5.3 km from Boadilla.
