Day 2 Roncesvalles to Zubiri
Wednesday 27th March 2013
21.5km - 6.5 hrs

 

Ready for off - outside Roncesvalles Monastery

Not that far then? Only 790 km to go!

I started walking on the designated track to the right of the sign above, but soon became bogged down in mud and remaining snow. Rather than continue I made my way back on to the road where I joined Adolphus and Rosa again, and we walked together to Auritz Burguete, where we stopped for breakfast at the Bar Fronton. I continued on the road as far as Aurizberri Espinal with them, and shortly thereafter went back to the Camino trail.

The church at Auritz Burguete
( "Auritz" in Basque, "Burguete" in Castilian)

Ready for off again, after breakfast in Bar Fronton, Auritz Burguete

Some Banksy style art, Spanish style

The paths were clear ahead, if somewhat muddy in places

Ponchos are light and airy, but not so good in wind

Skies still grey and misty as I reached Erro

A lovely Spanish doorway circa 1736

 

Signs of spring

Dropping down into Zubiri

The medieval Puente De La Rabia

 

Accommodation Notes

There are several Casa Rural and private albergues near the Puente De La Rabia,
but I headed for the Municipal Albergue

A bit busier early the next morning!
