The Monjardín is the peak that overlooks the town, and remnants of the 10th century Castillo de San Esteban that once protected it remain. The key to the gate can be found at Bar Ilarria in the plaza.

The Road: 

The distance between here and Los Arcos has a tendency to pass very slowly, and there are little opportunities for shade. Stock up well with water.

For an early breakfast or coffee look to the main road (southeast of the church) where you will find a few bars that cater to early-to-rise pilgrims and early-to-work truck drivers.

The Iglesia de Santa María de la Asunción, located in the main square, is a radiant sight.

History: 

Los Arcos, a village dating back to its Roman occupation, is laid out in long streets which run parallel to the Río Odrón. Your approach along the camino brings you into the north side of town, and it was on top of the hills to the east (left on approach) that the castle once stood. It is a...

Market day is Saturday. The locals also celebrate their patron Santa María from August 14th to 20th.

The Road: 

Exiting the town, you pass through the Arco de Felipe V and cross over the Río Odrón. A few of the albergues in town are located on the west side of the river.

The yellow arrows have a tendency to keep to the road as they take you through this small village. To see anything of importance, including the church and many of Sansol’s several old baroque homes, turn right at the large ceramic tile sign indicating “Sansol” on the side of one of the first...

History: 

Named after San Zoilo, a young man martyred in Cordoba under the rule of Diocletian in 304AD.

Incidentally, his relics are preserved in the Benedictine Monasterio de San Zoilo in Carrión de los Condes. The local church is likewise dedicated to him.

Descending from the heights of Sansol into Torres del Río, one wonders why anyone would build a village in such an awkward to defend location. The only logical reason is the Río Linares which gives the town its name and easy access to water.

The town is curious for the fact that...

History: 

The stretch between here and Viana has the nickname The Knee Wrecker because of its frequent ups and downs. The only place for shade and pause is at the Capilla de la Virgen del Poyo where a seasonal food kiosk sets up shop.

Viana is a thriving city that serves as a good stopping point. A pair of albergues, a few churches, the occasional closing of the city streets to run with the bulls, and a handful of good restaurants offer a break from walking.

There is a nice green park, small but a great place to rest,...

History: 

Viana, being a frontier town along the border with La Rioja, has been built with obvious fortifications. The most strategic of these is it’s perch high above the surrounding hillside.

Although the city walls served their purpose well, holding off several prolonged sieges, the town changed...

The Road: 

Not long after leaving Viana you will have left Navarra behind and entered into La Rioja. The way into Logroño, its capital, is without much heavy industry.

Once you have crossed the Río Ebro, you have entered Logroño proper.

Worth visiting are the Concatedral de Santa María de La Redonda (it shares the title of Cathedral with Santo Domingo, and it has a semi-hidden painting of the crucifixion by Michelangelo), the Iglesia de San Bartolomé,...

History: 

Like a few towns before, and several ahead, Logroño owes it’s success to the construction of the stone bridge over the Río Ebro which for a long time was the only suitable crossing point of this wide river. As such it was able to command a toll, to which pilgrims were subjected. Unfortunately...

Logroño seems always to be in a state of celebration. The two big festivals are for San Bernabé on the 11th of June, and San Mateo on the 21st of September. The latter of these two, held during the fall harvest, is much to do about wine.

The Road: 

Leaving Logroño is not unlike departing most large cities in that it winds its way across town in a way that mixes landmarks with practicalities. There are plenty of arrows to mark the way, but most are painted low on curbs and can be difficult to see if you are a pre-dawn walker.
