St James' Way
The phenomenon of the pilgrimage to Santiago
Ever since the 11th century, when King Sancho the Great of Navarre placed Irun on the route to Santiago de Compostela, this city has served as a vital point of passage on the pilgrim’s way, marking the transition from France to Spain.
Our city offers various alternatives for visitors, who can live the pilgrim experience for just a few hours or keep going on the path all the way to Santiago.
