Immortalized by and little changed since Ernest Hemmingway lodged here 1924. He was on a fishing trip, no doubt catching some of the trout that swim these rivers and which luckily for us end up on more than a few dinner tables.

The architecture here is typically Basque; massive multi-generation family homes with a name or a crest above the door.

Several good cafés and proof that the first cup of coffee you come to in town may not be the best. There is also a bakery/café beyond the turn mentioned below.

Fiesta: 

San Juan is celebrated the 24th to 26th of June. Other festivals include one for the Arts on the second Sunday of August, and another for Farming on the last Sunday of September.

The Road: 

Keep your wits about you when walking through town because the camino takes a sharp right turn halfway through. There are no less than twelve yellow arrows marking the turn, but it can still be overlooked by those admiring the charm of Burguete.

Camino de Santi... (not verified) said:

When I reached here, I found none of the restaurants open at supper time, all I had to do was waiting for the meal the hotel provided at 8, it was quite late for pilgrim, but meal was savory and worth for waiting. Also saw the piano which told to be used by Hemingway.
