  • Roncesvalles, historic location that I thought it was just a legend. After having crossed the Ibaneta I am almost immediately in front of the majestic monastery, which immediately makes you catapulted back in time! The Interior is well maintained and serviced by amenities (laundry, kitchen, refectory and garage bike) and the dorm is certainly the envy of many. Finally we can say that sleep where he fought Charlemagne is priceless ...

  • Great suggestion to transit and stay in the Collegiate Church of Roncesvalles especially after doing the Pyrenees crossing on foot from Saint Jean Pied de Port in France. Roncesvalles there is nothing: only the collegiate and two places to eat and stay. There are no shops, homes: it is only a place of transit or departures. After the evening mass the priest we did visit the crypt below where there are still 13th century decorations and then led us in the cloister that once was used as a cemetery. Finally ushered us into the Hall where there is the sarcophagus of Sancho VII ' El Fuerte ' King of Navarre that was up 2.15 mt of 1200. Adjoining the Church is the Capilla de Sancti Spiritus where legend has it that he died or was buried Rolando.

  • It wants today is a monastery in the hands of the Church, in his day was a hospital for pilgrims that came to less. Despite having a historical support, since the battle of Roncesvalles if that existed, apparently, what was done was to magnify what has happened, and monetize it in terms which, in those days, visits multiplied it as well as donations and have come up to our days. In any case, worth a visit
