Cirauqui sits perched atop a small hill and it seems that everywhere you go is uphill.  At the entrance to town is a medieval cross and at the top of town stands the Iglesia de San Román, the plaza, and an albergue.

Don’t forget to stamp your credentials under the archway.

Fiesta

The Day of the Cross is on the 14th of September, with a celebration from the 13th to the 19th.

History

Excavations in the surrounding area have turned up traces of a Roman settlement; a 2000-year-old milaro is preserved in the Iglesia de San Román, and the way out of town is over a Roman bridge.

The albergue is clean and looks nice. However, only two toilets for 26 people! And though there are separate sex showers, in those rooms you don't have a little private space to take your clothes off.
As for dinner, I find it very average. Only upside is that it is not the typical chicken or trout.

It seems that the church is sometimes open on Monday and Wednesday evenings, and for Sunday mass. But you can marvel at the superb portal at any time of day!

A very comfortable and charming Albergue . Solid quiet bunks with the option of cotton sheets. A lovely terrace to relax on and a gorgeous dining room in the wine cellar. Good clean bathrooms - and separate sex showers. Dinner was delicious. Our favorite meal so far. Big thanks to the friendly chef and hosts.

Had a great experience at this albergue. Good vegetarian communal dinner, a lovely terrace, Wi-Fi, snacks, and laundry available.
