walked this section October 13, 2019
Our final long walking day covered almost 14 Camino miles. The first third were up and over a magnificent, sometimes rocky hill and along its ridge before down through fields.
The middle was flat, dusty, and boring — past the Burgos airport. We did not even see any planes.
The final section brought us into Burgos via el parque fluvial. It was lovely and flat …. and too darn long.
We were very happy to arrive at our hotel, rest, and go to a very, very, very nearby bar for a cerveza grande.
