Under the motto "We'll go away for a change", in 2020 we will once again follow the trend of a pilgrimage on the Way of St. James. The Pilgrim's Way to Santiago (Spanish: Camino de Santiago) refers to the pilgrimage to the alleged tomb of the apostle James in Santiago de Compostela in Galicia. The Camino Francés, the main high medieval traffic route in northern Spain, stretches from the Pyrenees to the tomb of St James and connects the cities of Pamplona, Estella, Burgos and Leon. The origins of this route date back to the first half of the 11th century. A new, contemporary variant is the pilgrimage as "Motogrino" with the motorcycle. Our planned route runs through France and Northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela via selected routes. People come from all over the world to get to know this place. Join us on this extraordinary motorcycle tour!

Burgos, the capital of the province of the same name, the autonomous Spanish community of Castile-Leon, is characterised by its intact medieval architecture. The most famous landmark is the cathedral, built in the French Gothic style, dedicated to Saint Mary. Inside the church are the Capilla del Condestable, decorated with statues of saints, and the tomb of El Cid (Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar), an 11th century military leader.
