11. From Belorado to San Juan de Ortega

This 24-kilometer-long stage of the Camino Frances also follows mainly the N-120 road.

Be wary that San Juan de Ortega is a long way (over 12 km) from Villafranca Montes de Oca so it is best to stock up on water and food before moving on.

Heading out of Belorado, the first settlement you will reach in five kilometers is Tosantos followed soon by Villambistia and Espinosa del Camino. All of these villages are very small each with less than 100 inhabitants and with the exception of the local bar you won’t find much here. You will cross the bridge over River Oca and will arrive at Villafranca Montes de Oca, the last small village, until you reach the last stop of your day in San Juan de Ortega.

The 12th-century church in San Juan de Ortega contains the sarcophagus of San Juan, the patron saint of fertility.
