Obanos is a well-tended town and its streets and houses reflect its medieval past. Don’t miss a stroll through its streets to discover the beautiful civil architecture with brick or stone houses. Also part of the town’s rich architectural heritage are San Juan Bautista church and the hermitages San Salvador, San Lorenzo and Arnotegui.
The town’s cultural offering includes a theatre performance of "El Misterio de Obanos" (The Mystery of Obanos), which can be seen in June every odd year. "El Misterio de Obanos" recounts the legend of saints Guillén and Felicia, who were brother and sister, and the history of the Camino de Santiago. This is a great option if the timing of your trip happens to coincide with it — it’s a privilege to be able to enjoy an event declared a "Fiesta of National Tourist Interest".
Don’t miss the chance to visit the most beautiful hermitages on the Camino. The "Nuestra Señora de Eunate" Hermitage, built in the middle of the 12th century, is one of the jewels of the Romanesque period in Navarre.
In the town of Puente la Reina you'll find the "Iglesia del Crucifijo" (Church of the Crucifix), which is associated with the Order of the Knights Templars, whose impressive carving is considered one of the most representative of the Gothic style in Spain. Puente la Reina also has an interesting gastronomic offer, with numerous bars and restaurants to visit.

Information / Booking
Pamplona Puente la Reina
Distance: 24 km
Leaving Pamplona behind, the path takes you towards Cizur, and you'll cross a landscape of cereal crops. The Camino then slowly rises to "Alto del Perdón" (The Mount of Forgiveness), which offers fantastic views of the landscape you’ve left behind and that still ahead of you. Heading downhill, after passing through Uterga and Muruzábal, you’ll reach Obanos, the town where pilgrims arriving from Monreal via the Camino Aragonés meet up. From here, it’s only another 2 km to Puente la Reina, the final town on this stage of the Camino.
Monreal Puente la Reina
Distance: 30 km
A long and difficult stage, but one that is exceptionally beautiful due to its landscape with little ravines, hillsides, oak-lined paths, farmland and grazing livestock. From Monreal, passing through the valley of the river Elorz and advancing along the foot of the Alaiz mountain range, you take in some typical towns until you arrive at the Eunate Hermitage, where you’ll be able to admire this beautiful Templar structure. At Obanos, the route links up with the Camino Francés and then continues on to Puente la Reina.
