R2 – Day 6 : San Juan de Ortega – Burgos 26km

Heading out of San Juan de Ortega you will find Ages, with its Iglesia de Santa Eulalia. After 2km you reach the next village, Atapuerca, where the Iglesia de San Martin is located. Just three kilometres from this village is where 800,000-year-old human remains were discovered, the oldest human remains in Europe!
Burgos is a large city where you can see the walls of an old castle or the Museum of Human Evolution, but the main attraction of the city is its magnificent gothic cathedral.
