General information

Roncesvalles is one of the most emblematic places on the Camino de Santiago and is steeped in history. A few meters ahead, the walker will come across a pilgrim's cross from the 14th century.

In addition, it is a tradition among pilgrims, believers and non-believers, to attend the pilgrim's mass on the eve of the beginning of their adventure on the Camino de Santiago.



The first village on the route is Burguete, known for its sturdy Pyrenean-style farmhouses. Espinal is a typical Pyrenean village that was founded by the Navarrese king Teobaldo II in 1269. The road crosses the Alto de Menkiritz mountain before reaching the next village.

In Viscarret there was an inn for pilgrims. The route forks a little and passes through Erro. Climbing the Erro pass, pilgrims will discover "Roland's steps", a large stone that, according to legend, marks the size of Roland's footprint.

The first stage of the Camino de Santiago ends in Zubiri. To get there, you have to cross the Gothic bridge of the Rabia. According to tradition, if an animal with rabies goes around the central pillar of the bridge 3 times, it will be cured.
