General information

Fromista is a town located at the end of the sixth stage in Picaud's original pilgrim's guide. It is believed that the town was first inhabited by the Celts and then by the Romans. The Moors destroyed the town during the 8th century.

It was repopulated during the 10th century with the help of the wife of Sancho III, who founded a Benedictine monastery.

The only thing that remains of the monastery is the church of San Martin. This Romanesque church of San Martin is an imposing building that dominates the center of the square where it is located.



Stage 16 of the French Way will continue along the plateau, resulting in an easy and flat hike. Today's route is approximately 19 kilometers and will take you about 5 hours at an easy pace.

Many people take advantage of today's easy ride to get to Carrión de Los Condes. The first 3.5 kilometers are on the side of the road. It is a flat and easy path that has been created specifically for pilgrims. This road continues to the aforementioned Carrión de Los Condes.

After Población de Campos you can choose between two routes. However, the second one is much less traveled and less signposted.

From Población de Campos you cross the river, the road on the side of the road will pass through Revenga de Campos, Villarmentero de Campos, and Villalcazar de Sirga. Carrión de los Condes is 5.2 km from Villaclazar.
