As you approach Logrono, the regional capital, visitors cross into the well known wine growing region of the Rioja. As you continue towards Burgos, the landscape is dominated by vineyards. The Camino then takes you through crop fields with small brooks and oak woods until you reach the Montes de Oca Mountains and enjoy breath-taking views.
