Today whether walking the Camino for religious reason, to find yourself or simply get back to nature, the Camino de Santiago is a trip of a life time, a unique experience that inspires many even after the journey is over.

The town is also the old capital of the traditional Basque province of Lower Navarre and starting point for the Camino Frances.
