To end of camino

Navarra is the first of the Spanish Autonomous Communities along the Camino Francés. It extends from here, in the heights of the Pyrenees to the river plains of the Ebro on the outskirts of Logroño.

The language in these parts is officially Spanish and Basque. The signage here reflects that sentiment. Most towns have an alternative name, and if the authorities have not corrected the spelling you can be sure that someone with a spray can has.

You will as well see that the street names have dropped the castillian ‘Calle’ for the basque ‘Kalea.’



There’s a tap just over the Spanish border - don’t bother loll big for a border marker - there isn’t one. You’ll see the tap. Refill. It’s the last water until Roncesvalles and the next sections are when you’re most tired.
