El Camino en video: from Agés to Burgos

It begins stage 12 of the French Way that will take us to the city of Burgos, famous for its Gothic cathedral, declared World Heritage. But first we will have to go through Atapuerca, whose archaeological sites are protected by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

The climb to the Sierra de Atapuerca is made by a paved road for two kilometers. And from the top of Matagrande, we can already see Burgos on the horizon.

The descent to the city can be done through the Pico River valley. In Castañares, an interesting proposal is to look for the river Arlanzón and use its river promenade to the cathedral of Burgos. It is much nicer than the official road between asphalt and industrial sites!

Already in Burgos, the arc of Santa Maria gives way to Plaza Mayor and the cathedral. We are in the old walled city.
