Day 3A Taste of Saint James Way

The Saint James Way is a twelfth century pilgrimage route the foundations of which are even more ancient Roman roadways. During the later Middle Ages, and again more recently, this route has been travelled by thousands who are on spiritual or emotional journeys through the gorgeous Spanish countryside. We travel to Puente de la Reina and on to the winery, Castillo de Monjardin, for a wine tasting experience. As we journey southwest through expansive vistas of endless vineyards and olive groves, we will see that Navarra proves to be another gorgeous wonderland. The last town in Navarra on the pilgrimage route, Viana served, during the Middle Ages, as a defensive stronghold against the nearby and ancient Kingdom of Castile. Here we will have a fabulous late lunch in an asador where the chefs specialize in grilling everything over wood fires, giving you mouth-watering plates of red peppers, lamb chops, and massive T-bone steaks.

The route takes us up a slowly rising, winding mountain pass that brings us to a truly idyllic landscape of green pastures, rolling hills, and picturesque white-washed Basque farm houses.

We 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.
