History

King García Ramírez, the grandson of El Cid, died here in November of 1150. The first guidebook to the camino tells that the waters here were poisonous to horses, in fact so too was the water in every stream between here and Estella and a few more beyond. It was propaganda at its finest, and the waters are perfectly safe.

If you want the lentil soup from June to august José Ramón says just call ahead. Give him 1.5 hours and he will make it for you. One of the nicest persons we have met on the trip

Whatever you do, give yourself a treat, Casa Nahia is a gem of a place to kay your weary bones after the climbs fom Murtazibal and Lorca. This place is quite simple stunning.
More on oar with 4 star hotel at home this beautifully designed place is somthing else. State of the art kitchen fully equipped with superb quality items, bathroom with rain fall shower head and air conditioning to make sure you have tbe perfect temperature to aid your sleep in quality sheets and super comfy beds. The cost is a little more than you would pay for most accommodation on the Camino,£32 per person based on two sharing but the breakfast will give you so much energy and plenty to pack in your bag for later. The wrap around balcony gives wonderful views, by pass at your own loss.

What a treat (retreat)Casa Nahia is. I broke my long day into two shorter days to stay here. It’s is a modern, stylish place of calm. Welcoming helpful people. Well organised. Affordable. Do yourself a favour if you can. Delightful.

Recommend stopping for lunch at Albuerge Lorca - hopping with pilgrims near noon. My husband and I ordered lentil soup and they brought out a large tureen of soup, two bowls, and a bread basket for 10 euros. We finished it all, about 3 bowls each. Light broth with lentils, peppers, garlic cloves, zucchini, carrots, potatoes - perfect lunch and nice to get some veggies. They also had several varieties of tortilla, bocadillos, fresh squeezed OJ, salad, sodas, beer. They had ice for our soda, and it was a generous amount! The toilet was very clean too.
