In this small village of Burgos, which name derives from its geographical proximity and geomorphological similarity with Rioja, there are less than 60 inhabitants.
It is known for being the birthplace of Santo Domingo de la Calzada (born in 1019), an illustrious son of the town and one of the saints who promoted and help construct the Camino.
His baptism basin has been preserved in the church of Our Lady of the Assumption, which is also situated opposite his childhood home, located at No. 2 Calle Asunción. The enclave offers walkers a pleasant rest, with the private hostel Acacio y Orietta, driven by a Brazilian and an Italian and sponsored by the author Paulo Coelho, to whom all pilgrims can send a message.
If you are traveling on the Camino de Santiago or are planning to do so soon, you should know that the distance separating Viloria de Rioja from Santiago de Compostela is 552 kilometers.
