The Roncesvalles to Zubiri stage video!
The stage from Roncesvalles to Zubiri is considered the first for many pilgrims who decide to join the Camino de Santiago when it reaches Spain. Far from the slopes and the sparsely populated landscape of the Pyrenees, we now find a simpler and more bearable route.
We started this stage at the top of the port of Ibañeta, from where we went down a boat to Roncesvalles. On this high, an old bell led the pilgrims between the fog.
In Roncesvalles, the Royal Collegiate of Santa Maria, of the 13th century, is a reference of the Gothic Navarre. Then we passed through Burguete and its blasphemed homes. Until we reach Espinal, the stage is almost flat.
From here the road hardens. We climb the high of Mezkiritz to Viscarret and in Linzoáin the rise to Alto de Erro begins. The last descent of the day brings us to the town of Zubiri. We access it after crossing the Rabies Bridge over the Arga River. It's a medieval bridge built in the 12th century.
