Obanos

The town of Obanos is located in Valdizarbe, in the central zone of Navarre, just 24 kms from Pamplona, and belongs to the region of Puente la Reina. The town is nestled in a valley traversed by the river Robo, amid a landscape of cereal crops and vineyards and particularly interesting spots given the richness of nature here.

The town is also notable for its history. During the Middle Ages, Obanos was the seat of the "Junta de los Infanzones", a council formed of noblemen, clergy and merchants which was set up to defend the town against abuses by the monarchy.

Obanos offers a wide range of services: bars and restaurants where visitors can enjoy the local gastronomy, shops, medical attention, a pharmacy and cash machines. You also have a couple of leisure options in the form of a frontón (wall for practicing sports) and the municipal pool.

Architecture

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.

"El Misterio de Obanos"

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".

Pilgrims' corner

Dear pilgrim friend, we hope to see you in Obanos, a place where those coming from the two main Pilgrim's Way to Santiago routes in Navarre, can meet up and enjoy a well-deserved rest.

In this section you’ll find some information to help you plan your day. Happy Camino!

French Way
(Camino francés)

Stage: 4
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.

Aragonese Way
(Camino aragonés)

Stage: 6
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.
