Transfer to Hornillos in the morning to start your walk though the Meseta. There is little shade on this route and therefore make sure you have sun protection with you and plenty of water.

The trail will take you throuh the pilgrim villages of San Bol, Hontanas and Arco San Anton before you reach Castrojeriz.
