Your journey begins with a stroll through history when you visit the monastery Santa Maria de la Real, which was once a royal burial site.
Walking through the vineyards of the Rioja region you reach Santo Domingo de la Calzada. Legend has it, that here a dead chicken came back to life on the plate that it was served on. Today, a rooster and a chicken live in the church of Santo Domingos, as a reminder of this supposed miracle.
The next stage takes you to the fertile land, referred to as the “granaries of Spain”, up the Castile high plain. Beyond Atapuerca, where once the bones of the first European Homo Sapiens were found, you walk to the destination of the section: Burgos. Stroll around this ancient city and make sure to visit its famous cathedral of Santa Maria.
