Zubiri and Bridge of Rabies Camino

Our view from room four at our pension for the night at Zubiri. Nice clean comfortable shared room for 50 euros. Private bath and laundry available.

This morning we walked the Camino from Roncesvalles to Zubiri. It was all mountain trails until finally reaching the Puente la Reina. Of the many rivers that flow out of the mountains, the Río Arga continues flowing along our camino path until we reach Pamplona.

This medieval bridge dates back to the 12th century. According to the legend, any animal who passed under the arches of the bridge or around the central pillar would be protected (or cured) of rabies.

Today, it is known as the “Puente de la Rabia” (bridge of rabies).

Earlier I saw a peregrino/pilgrim washing his hiker clothes in the river. I did the same thing only I used the sink. The problem now is drying. Laundry not blisters continue plaguing me. I like my merino wool shirt and hoodie so will wear it the second day after just hanging it to air.

Right now (3/29/2018) it is puffy jacket weather outside.
