San Martin de Frómista is the epicenter of Romanesque art in Spain and therefore the ideal base to discover the Romanesque of Palencia. Our region is the richest area in Europe in Romanesque monuments and Frómista is an ideal place from which you can discover it.

From the Hotel Doña Mayor we invite you to be surprised by the Romanesque buildings, the landscape of the mountain of Palencia or Cerrato and to follow the pilgrimage paths on the Camino de Santiago.

We provide you with plans of the most significant routes and access to the different touristic resources (Romanesque churches, museums, monasteries ...) and we make a rout for you adapted to the time you have.


Frómista is located in the heart of the Canal de Castilla, a work of hydraulic engineering that began to sketch D. Antonio de Ulloa mid-eighteenth century. Along its 207 km route we can observe the geometry of its locks-the locks Frómista or triple Calahorra de Ribas and El Serrón -, bridges, aqueducts and docks - Palencia and Alar del Rey.

The channel developed new centers of population. Modified the lifestyles of people _, and still does even today. But above all, the construction of the Canal de Castilla testified that even the wildest dreams end up coming true: the one of creating a new source from which gushes life. All it concentrated in a single clear objective: to end with the isolation historic heart of Castile.

Nowadays, we can enjoy a green route of first order on the national scene. Ideal to get around on foot, bicycle, horseback or aboard of the tourist boats that run through it.

The Jacobean route enters Palencia crossing Itero de la Vega, on the banks of Pisuerga river. The journey continues and reaches Boadilla del Camino and from here to Frómista. Our tour progresses along the banks of the Canal de Castilla, the main work of the Spanish Enlightenment, and crosses the Jacobean route in Frómista. This was considered the cross of the Way of Faith and Reason, as the National Literature prize DºRaul Guerra Garrido wrote in his book Castile Canal.

The traveler reaches Frómista where the Romanesque church of San Martin outstands. This church was part of the Benedictine monastery founded by Mrs. Mayor. From Frómista the Way starts its route at this stage in Población Campos, then it crosses the villages of Villovieco; Revenga de Campos and Villarmentero de Campos. Afterwards, the journey continues until you reach Villalcázar of Sirga, where the church of Santa Maria la Blanca stands, with its thirteenth century chapel dedicated to Apostle St. James..

Finally, the Pilgrim's Way takes walkers to the town of Carrion de los Condes, a city with an important medieval past: it was court of kings, councils headquarters and home of such distinguished characters as the Marquis of Santillana.
