Camping Camino de Santiago
Spain, Castilla Y Leon, Burgos, Castrojeriz
Alan Rogers Review
This site is located on the famous Camino de Compostela which is still walked by today’s pilgrims. The path passes by the site entrance and there is an ancient pilgrims’ refuge just outside the gate. It lies to the west of Burgos on the outskirts of Castrojeriz, in a superb location, almost in the shadow of the ruined castle high on the hillside. Apart from just four units to rent, the site takes only touring units. The 50 marked pitches are level, grassy and divided by hedges, with 10A electricity and mature trees providing shade. This site is also a birdwatchers’ paradise – large raptors abound. Since Roman times the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, which starts from Pyrenean France, has been one of the most significant pilgrims’ trails. Today it is almost as popular as ever and the campsite has a wide range of European visitors attracted by its proximity to this famous route, along with the opportunity to try some of it for themselves.
The trail near the campsite is well signed and easy to walk covering some majestic open countryside with far reaching views, along with some fascinating historical architecture en route.
