The Road: 

In Elorriaga the camino splits again. The GR-121 turns off to the right just before you get to the bar in town, and follows the coastline once more and in doing so it does not pass Itziar.

The official camino follows the road out of Elorriaga, descending towards the N-634. Cross with care here, the traffic moves fast around the bend in the road. The camino continues up the road on the opposite side. The way is well marked and will bring you back around to meet and follow the N-634 (bar). At the bar it crosses over the AP-8 and continues along the N-634. Try to keep to the right-hand side along this stretch because the camino leaves the road to follow a quieter path on that side. It will again meet up with the N-634, this time at a large junction. The village of Itziar is on the hilltop on the opposite side of the N-634, the Santuario church tower is visible from a distance. Climb up the road into Itziar, following the most direct route to the church.

ATTENTION!!! Don’t follow the red way if you are not fit enough , have a heavy backpack and if you don’t have poles with you... very dangerous and very difficult path. For proper hikers! Fox

Camino Dragon: After the cider place you come to a motorway. There is a small pub. Basic but nice. If you ask for a bocadillo they will do you one no hassle. Tastes pretty good. Also Vino Blanco. Not many customers and seems a bit random but nice rustic wooden tables with sunshades outside if you like and tiled interior. Make sure you can order in Spanish.

The app shows there is food here. There is a bar however it is “Privado”. It looks like a bar and Spanish people were drinking and eating and a small van full of beer kegs delivered about 150 bottles of St Miguel and Schweppes tonic water, However either they don’t like tourists/pilgrims or it is a co op type arrangement for local farmers. I echo above comments about food truck 500M back up trail, though not inspiring. Suggest buy bread / cheese in previous town. Fortunately we bought Bino Tinto there and had cigarettes. Sat enjoying them on bench opposite pub. Nice.

There was not an open restaurant/bar in this small town. Luckily there was a small food truck by the camping area where the red meets blue that we could go back to and grab some snacks.
