The Way of St James and its cultural heritage
The most famous of all roads, the road to Santiago de Compostela, has been swelling every part of Navarre through which it passes with history for hundreds of years.
Little can be added to what’s already been said about this road. It’s one of the best-known routes in the world, attracting thousands year in, year out, and has for a long time now been a member of the select group of World Heritage sites.
Those travelling the Way have a very clear objective: to reach Santiago. But as every ending must have a beginning, we invite you to start via Orreaga/Roncesvalles and let yourself be captivated by the culture and history you can find on any of the four branches of the Way.
Have your phone at the ready, because there’s a lot to photograph on this real must as far as cultural tourism in Navarre is concerned.Take me to the Way of St James
The Ignatian Way, a route that goes against the flow
To follow in the footsteps of San Ignacio de Loyola on his most famous journey, you have to follow the Way of St James in the opposite direction from that marked by the yellow arrows.
Because the ultimate destination of this pilgrimage is another holy city, Jerusalem, to which a young Ignatius decided to walk in 1522, crossing paths on his way with numerous pilgrims who wanted to put him on the ‘right track’, the road to Santiago.
His feat has now been recreated by the Ignatian Way, which follows the path taken by the founder of the Society of Jesus, the Jesuits, over 650 km in 27 stages from Loyola — Azpeitia, Gipuzkoa — to Manresa in Barcelona.
On the way, you’ll come across gems like Tudela and the Cortes Castle, to name but a few.
For sure, a little-known but bright star of cultural tourism in Navarre.Take me to the The Ignatian Way
