Camino de Santiago

Camino de Santiago — Pilgrims walking the French Way on the Camino de Santiago will inevitably pass through Pamplona, which is the first major city on the Spanish side of the border and a popular stop-off for weary travelers. You don’t have to be carrying a backpack to follow in the footsteps of the pilgrims, whose route through Pamplona is lined with monuments of religious significance. After starting at the Magdalena Bridge with a stone cross (or cruceiro) bearing an image of St. James, the old city is entered via the Portal de Francia. Pilgrims normally collect their stamps from the Cathedral before continuing on through the medieval city and out through the Portal de San Nicolás.
