The Camino leaves Zubiri across the bridge of Rabia and over the next 6 kilometres crosses the villages of Ilarratz, Eskirotz and Larrasoaña, surrounding the latter and going into it through the bridge of Los Bandidos over the river Arga.
The path ascends to Akerreta with its medieval church, the Transfiguración, and descends again towards the river Arga and the bridge of Zuriain, which marks half of the day’s walk.
After that, in Irotz
, you can find the Romanesque bridge of Iturgaiz and the river walk along the Arga. There are two options to reach Pamplona from here: a longer but flatter route by the river and through Huarte, or the historic route. The latter reaches Villava
, 16 kilometres away from the departure point; Burlada, the bridge of the Magdalena; and Pamplona
. This is the first city of the Camino Francés, with its renowned San Fermines festival, and its streets invite wandering. A visit to the Cathedral’s cloister, the Castillo Plaza and the city fortress are highly recommended.Here
