I got some goods to make a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.
I’m not going to walk through the entire courses to Santiago de Compostela. I will be walking, taking a bus and sightseeing sometime. I’m not so young.
Iglesias de Santa Maria de Eunate (Church of Saint Mary) is a 12th-century Romanesque church located about 22 km south-west of Pamplona. Its origins are unsure due to lack of documentation.
The church has an octagonal figure and does not belong to a present-day village or town.
Interior of the church is the typical architectural features of the European Romanesque art, as well as some other local Romanesque characteristics.
The church is surrounded by arches of single and double columns. The church is a hermitage dedicated to the Virgin Mary and people from all of the Valdizarbe valley (located southwest of Pamplona in Navarra) celebrate a traditional romería (religious pilgrimage to Saint James) there.
Leave the church Santa Maria de Eunate for the nearby village Obanos 2.5 km away. It will take 40 minutes on foot.
Obanos is just 20 kilometres from Pamplona. This small village, its population of 924 inhabitants, is on the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route. Pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela pass through the village.
Passing through the archway, there is a central square (Plaza de los Fueros) of Obanos village.
It looks that villagers enjoy their life, I also feel happy. The church of San Juan is on the square.
This neo-Gothic parish church was built in 1912 and dedicated to John the Baptist.
Obanos is a peaceful village, the residents are friendly and helpful. I really love it. After resting for a while, I left Obanos for the next town of Puente la Reina.
