When you camino-holics have done all 15 + camino routes in Spain, you might want to try the Camino del Cid which meanders over 2,000 kilometers (nearly 1,300 miles) with a number of variants and offshoots.
It wanders through eight Spanish provinces, (Burgos, Soria, Guadalajara, Zaragoza, Teruel, Castellón, Valencia and Alicante). Parts of the trail follow the GR-160, through the Tierras Musulmanas (“the moorish lands”).
The route is largely based on literature and the demi-legend of Rodrigo Diaz, the eleventh century nobleman, warlord and national hero, as portrayed in the epic poem The Cid.

Many, various, and continuing.
...and note that this is a historic/touristic route, not a "camino" in the pilgrimage sense. I did a piece of this last Fall, it´s got some really weird and wonderful things to see and do all down through rural Burgos province at least. Just don´t expect any pilgrim infrastructure, albergues, etc.
Spain is so cool. The camino is just the gateway drug.

Many pilgrims arriving in Burgos for the first time will of course go to the Cathedral for their sello and then walk around to see the many fantastic pieces of art, or to seek out the crypt of "El Cid and his Dona Jimena". For those of you from America, as you walk around, you'll step just outside the main Cathedral area and enter a court yard. There you'll see on the wall a picture of the Cid. Take a close look and see if you recognize the model.

There's so much to see and do in Burgos. It's the location on my Camino in 2008 where I threw away my walking stick and took up using fore-arm crutches.

Hi Arn,
Do you know if that wonderful statue of El Cid in Burgos was sculpted by Anna Hyatt Huntington? I believe the one of El Cid in Valencia was done by her. And there is a street named after her and her husband in Valencia as well. Imagine my surprise strolling through Valencia and suddenly coming upon a street named "Calle Archer y Anna Huntington"! Here's a link if anyone is interested... Redding is an adjoining town to Weston, where I live, and I often take my dog for an outing there. I'm hoping to take some students to the Hispanic Society of America in New York later this spring when the Sorrolla exhibit returns from Spain. Because the Huntington's were such an important part of the local history, I've become quite interested in their ties to Spain.

Buen Camino,
Deirdrè
