An inspirational walk along the mid section of the Camino across the vast Meseta to Leon. From Burgos, the city of El Cid with its majestic Gothic cathedral, walk the mid section of the French Camino route to the city of Leon. Between the two the route veers away from civilisation to the high plains of central Spain, or the Meseta. Here there are few distractions to the walk, which makes this a unique and inspirational journey where the sound of your footfall competes only with the wind in the corn flelds. At Frómista take in the simplicity of the Romanesque church before continuing on your way to Leon, with its lively tapas bars and grand buildings in complete contrast to the solitude of the Meseta.
