Beyond Burgos begins the seemingly infinite plateau, called the Meseta. This surreal world seems to be made of nothing but corn fields and blue sky, and has been described as both barren and beautiful.
Past the ruins of the monastery of San Anton leads the Camino again through gently moving corn fields. Finally leaving the solitude of the Meseta, you soon pass through charming and remote villages. Houses are still made from clay, in the traditional way, which makes them blend perfectly into the landscape around them. The destination of this stage is Sahagún, home of the famous brick churches built in Moorish style (Mudéjar-style)
