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