Camino – Zubini (Day 4)

Date: Fri 10th May

Ok, we’ll come clean on our accommodation at Roncesvalles! We had pre-booked the only Hotel in town and skipped the Albergue. This Hotel is 5 stars and worth every Euro! They served the Pilgrims 3 course menu for €9 per head and we opted for breakfast as well for an additional €8.

Breakfast 5 Star! We finally headed off at 9:50am. This is definitely NOT typical of a departure time for a typical pilgrim. We later found out that most of our fellow pilgrims stayed at the local Albergue and were woken with lights on at 6am. Most were on the road by 7:30 and some as early as 6:30am! No wonder we had the track to ourselves!

We thought it was 790km from SJPDP! Whilst we headed off with very low clouds overhead and single digit temperatures, it wasn’t raining and we were still greeted with fantastic scenery with the added quaint villages thrown in!

Arrived at the town of Zubini 22Km from Roncesvalles. The muscles are starting to let’s us know they need a well earned rest! As we crossed over the Romanesque bridge into Zubini, we were greeted with an enterprising local Spanish lady offering private accommodation. Knowing we were one of the last to arrive and being a small town, we took her offer and were escorted to a neat little house nearby. Looks like we have the place to ourselves!

We again finished off the day with the typical Pilgrims 3 course meal noting many pilgrims that we have seen on different occasions along the way.
