Esta etapa es realmente tranquila. Tanto que muchos peregrinos escogen realizar este tramo para alejarse de grandes ciudades y del mundanal ruido, para caminar solos sin otra compañía que su propia sombra. Pero atención: la soledad tiene un precio y este recorrido de casi 20 km no dispone de más que una población intermedia, por lo que te recomendamos que vayas bien provisto de agua si viajas en verano y que no te olvides de un gorro y la protección solar pertinente.

También te recomendamos que inicies la andadura a primera hora de la mañana para evitar las horas de máximo calor. Desde Hornillos del Camino son algo más de diez los kilómetros que te separan de Hontanas, a la que accederás por la Calle Real. El camino discurre a partir de ahí junto a las ruinas de una antigua torre y abandona el núcleo para volver a la soledad de los campos de cereal. A la salida de Hontanas encontrarás uno de los pocos tramos con sombra, en este caso de fresnos, que te harán más llevadero este tramo del camino y, a lo lejos, distinguirás las ruinas del Convento de San Antón fundado en el siglo XII.

Desde aquí escasos kilómetros te separan de Castrojeriz, la última población de la provincia de Burgos en el Camino de Santiago. Una pequeña villa de  casas tradicionales blasonadas y un interesante patrimonio religioso, con ejemplos como la Colegiata de Nuestra Señora del Manzano, el Convento de San Francisco, el Monasterio de Santa Clara o la iglesia de Santiago de los Caballeros.
