Paisaje Zubiri
Half-way between Orreaga/Roncesvalles and Pamplona stands Zubiri, an essential stopover on the 'French route' of the Pilgrim's Way to Santiago .

Surrounded by beautiful scenery, Zubiri is the main town in the Esteribar valley and one of the biggest in the area. Although it has undergone a recent transformation it still conserves some features from the 18th century.

The mediaeval bridge that give the town its name crosses the river Arga. It is also known as 'Rabies Bridge' and witnessed a singular tradition in years gone by: animals were walked around its main pillar to stop them getting rabies because legend says that the pillar has the power to cure the disease.

The festivities of Zubiri are held in the first week of August in honour of San Esteban.


How to get there and move around

salir de Pamplona por la carretera de Huarte y enlazar con la PA-30 dirección Francia hasta el desvío a la derecha por la N-135 hacia Zubiri.
