The visit to Ujué concludes with a stroll to the historic Ujué Fortress Church. We transfer to Olite.

We will continue on into the lush foothills of the Pyrenees, travelling close to parts of the Saint James Way until we reach Burguete, where Hemingway stayed when he came to the area for relaxation. We visit the little hotel he slept in, and even visit his actual room, which the family has kept the same all these years.
