In the northeast of the Navarre region and 47 km from Pamplona is Roncesvalles, the point of departure for modern pilgrims on the road to Santiago de Compostela. A centre of religion and monuments, prominent among the historic-artistic heritage of Roncesvalles is the collegiate church, in which its magnificent church and the image of the Virgin, both in the Gothic style, are outstanding; the church of Santiago, which is also Gothic, and the Espíritu Santo, which is Romanesque, as well as its interesting museum and the old hospital of Itzandegia.
