The monetary and the CR Las Henera are the two choices in San Juan de Ortega. There is one restaurant. So not a lot of choice. But the pilgrims mass on the church is exquisite and the dinner at the local bar/restaurant is a very...More

Unlike lots of other churches along the Camino, this one is open all day. It is beautiful, quiet and peaceful - an ideal place to sit and pray/contemplate awhile. There is a daily pilgrim mass at 6pm, with an accompanying booklet in many languages. The...More

The monastery is being rehabbed by the Patrimonio which takes on many of the historic spots in Spain. The church has been almost completed and is wonderful. Make sure you look in the side chapels, some of the altarpieces are quite unique.

Stopped here on our Camino tour and after a stage walk. There was a pilgrim Mass in Spanish underway. One can see where this is a welcome rest for pilgrims.

Situated on the Pilgrims' Trail, this church is in a small village. Although not particularly attractive from the outside, it has an impressive interior with interesting historical items which have informative signs written in Spanish, French and English.
