Two restaurants offer pilgrim menus. They are on opposite ends of town, the first near the main square and the other down the road. The shop here offers everything you need to put together a meal, it is next to the church.

On extremely busy days, the polideportivo (sports complex) that is adjacent to the municipal albergue is used to accommodate pilgrims.

History

The name Zubiri comes from the Basque word for both bridge and pueblo, and the bridge they spoke about is the one over the river Arga known as the Puente de la Rabia. The bridge itself was thought to cure rabies and hydrophobia in animals, and rituals of crossing the bridge with them or circling its base a number of times were all that it took to work miracles. These miracles were later Christianized and attributed to Santa Quiteria.

Opened at 0700 for breakfast - great coffee and really generous serving sizes of toast with cheese and marmalade and also tortilla. We asked for two ham and cheese bocadillos for lunch wrapped to go as we had read on the blogs here that nothing would be open before hitting the Pamplona suburbs. My husband ordered two, one for each of us, and they were huge! We ended up just sharing one for lunch, perched on rocks along the Arga, and saved the second for the next day. Very friendly owner.

Only one restaurant open for dinner, near the far end of town, not great but totally fine.
