Castrojeriz is located on the border between the provinces of Burgos and Palencia, 49 kilometres in distance from both. Those pilgrims who want to begin their journey to Santiago from here should ideally travel to Burgos and from there via bus they can reach the town.
The reverse case applies for those who want to make a stop in Castrojeriz and return to their place of origin. They can reach Burgos by bus. The company that covers the route is Autobuses Amaya. The bus line is that of Burgos-Frómista, with departures from Burgos on Mondays to Fridays at 17.30 pm and from Frómista, also from Monday to Friday, at 07.30 hours. In addition, the company Soto y Alonso SL also connects Castrojeriz with Burgos on Fridays via the bus line Arenillas-Burgos.
To Castrojeriz the bus usually arrives at 08.50 hours to continue its journey to the capital of Burgos. On the contrary, the departing bus from Burgos leaves at 18.30. For more information call the company: 947 472830.
Correos offers a delivery backpacks service so you can walk without loads and enjoy the routes and stages. You can also purchase a packaging and shipment of bicycles service. The price is 42,03 euros (VAT included, shipping to mainland Spain). This is available in all offices.
In Castrojeriz the company responsible for passenger transport is Autocares Z & Z. The address is Carretera de Hontanas, 15 (947377032/696443722). The price is one euro per kilometre. Therefore, the journey between Castrojeriz and Frómista has a cost of 25 kilometres. This company covers, however, large distances and a wide area. Among its services is also the transport of backpacks.
The cost is usually 6 or 7 euros for luggage. For the transfer of luggage one of the main options is Jacotrans, the company that covers the entire pilgrimage route. The contact for the stretch of Burgos to Leon is Luis Ángel. Contact: 650451540 or firstname.lastname@example.org). Rates are from 7 euros.
The normal procedure for those sleeping in public shelters, and thus unable to reserve a place at their next accommodation until their time of arrival-is to allocate a bar or another destination point where they can collect their luggage. For those staying in private hostels or hotels, their backpack will be waiting for them at their next accommodation. In both cases the walkers should call in advance because the service vehicles usually start delivering before 0900 hours.
By noon, they are already at their destination. Another company that also cover the entire route is Camino Facil. The procedure is identical to that of Jacotrans. Pilgrims should call or email the day before to have everything planned.
Backpacks are delivered to their destination by lunchtime. The rates are from 7 euros although, prices may vary depending on the number of people and the number of stages covered (for cyclists), the price may be higher. Contact: 610798138/947585002/947580010; email@example.com
Pilgrims on horseback can find an equestrian centre in Castrojeriz situated next to the swimming pool of the town.
Although Castrojeriz does not have a specific workshop for bikes, the company responsible for the transport of passengers and backpacks, Autocares Z & Z, has had, for many years a workshop with bike parts, which may be of assistance to riders in trouble.
