Rest Days

Hi All

Just wondering what are the best places for 'rest days' I was planning on at least 2 planned rest days at Burgos and Leon.

On my rest days I'd like to either have enough things to do in the city, or be able to do a side-trip of some sort.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Planning on starting at Saint Jean Pied de Port, in September 07.

You could do a side trip to Santo Domigo de Silas from Burgos and spend a night there. I'm sure you know that it is the home of the monks of the Gregorian Chant fame.
From Leon you could do a side trip up to Oviedo and spend a night there.
