Description

Situated 35 miles west of Burgos in Castrojeriz; a medieval village found along the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trail with interesting historical buildings including palaces commissioned by the Royal Council of Castile during the XVI century.

The hotel (a little gem) is in a beautifully re-constructed medieval house featuring 7 en-suite bedrooms, an intimate dining room and lounge and a separate outdoor patio with barbecue for dining during warmer months. Throughout the house is stunning glasswork, stone arches, fine woodwork and lots of books. Your friendly hostess Avelina and her husband are an extremely nice couple who delight in taking care of their appreciative guests - just read the guestbook.

Many heritage visits nearby including the Gothic Saint John church which houses an important collection of paintings and tapestries. Ideal place to wind down for a couple of days.

ROUTES IN BURGOS PROVINCE

The Road to Santiago:
The province of Burgos is one of the most important stations on this famous tourist itinerary. The first places to visit are Redecilla del Camino and Belorado, the latter being interesting for its square with arcades and ruins of walls. After crossing the beautiful mountainous landscape of Villafranca the way arrives to San Juan de Ortega, , named after the Saint who together with Santo Domingo de la Calzada was the most important architect of this route and built the town's church in 12th century. The itinerary passes Burgos, Olmillos with its 16th century castle and church, Castrojeriz, having as major attraction the impressive ruins of a medieval fortress, and leaves the province at Itero, where you can see the famous bridge with eleven arcs that was called "Ponteroso" in medieval literature.

Route of the northern villages:
This peaceful route is a quiet tip for the tourist who wants to discover medieval Spain, far away from the rush of mass-tourism, and feel as if times had not passed by.
Among the most interesting places there are Briviesca, with its old stone-bridge and Santa Casilda Sanctuary 10 km from the village; Medina de Pomar, picturesque town with an impressive castle, Alcazar, monastery and hermitage; Frias,  a pure medieval village dominated by its castle on a high rock; Puentearenas with its 11th century Romanesque abbey; the palaces of Espinosa de los Monteros and Sedano; the 12th century Romanesque church of Moradillo de Sedano and the 11th century temple of Rebolledo de la Torre.

Route of the Southern Villages:
Quintanilla de las Viñas is of high historical importance for its visigothic church. Covarubias  conserves traces of a very old history in its palace, the impressive stone tower of Doña Urraca and La Colegiata. Salas de los Infantes is famous for its plateresque retable and the nearby Monastery of Silos with an exceptional 11th century cloister. Peñaranda del Duero  and Lerma are other important towns in Spanish history. Most interesting to visit are the ducal palace, built over an old fortress, and the 12th century Colegiata.
