I loved this ancient cathedral and felt very special going to the pilgrims mass and receiving my first blessing for my journey ahead. I lit a candle for loved ones and found the experience sublime.

Whilst interesting, the town of Roncesvalles is (fortunately) not a good indicator of what lies ahead in Spain. Spain is one of my favourite countries and has hundreds of little towns and villages. With a permanent population of 15, Roncesvalles is easy to miss (and...More

The church is beautiful, and the pilgrim mass was excellent. The priests leading it were very sincere even though they do a lot of pilgrim masses. Was a real blessing!

Part of the complex that houses Pilgrims. Wonderful experience, beautiful buildings, limited places to eat or drink in the area but it all works somehow :-)

This ancient church is located on the Pilgrim’s route. Unlike many churches in Spain, it is open all day and entry is free of charge. The church has massive stained glass windows. A crypt is located down a narrow flight of stairs.
