Looks interesting! A few historical landmarks of interest and the beginning of the Camino del Cid. Looks like a village to explore a bit and begin walking south towards Soria and Alicante; I'm intrigued!

An hour+ down there an hour + back for a village of 250 people and a statue? Unless you are a stalwart El Cid groupie, I would settle for the statue in Burgos.

Well, a lot of folks spend hours and hours flying to Spain to walk a dusty trail for 30-40 days to end up in a church with a bunch of bones, so why NOT detour a few hours to pay homage in the birthplace of El Cid? In fact, these kind of diversions often result in memorable days as you run into like-minded pilgrims or villagers impressed with your desire to come to their tiny village.

I say go for it! 👍

That sounded like something Clint Eastwood would say! Bravo!

I agree with the sentiments too!
