    Day 2 Roncesvalles  – Larrasoana
    27.4km, about 7 hours.

    For me leaving Roncesvalles is a dream as the route is mostly downhill a welcome change after yesterday. 300 meters after Roncesvalles you will come to the Cruz de Peregrinos a 14th century Gothic pilgrims cross, which was moved here in 1880 from further up the mountains.  The cross depicts King Sancho el Fuerte and his wife Clemencia.

    The Camino Frances follows the side of the N135 for most of the day – which is a quiet country road that weaves down the foothills towards Pamplona; initially is tree lined and most of the day is easy underfoot.

    Burguete 3km there is a cafe in the village which supplies the passing pilgrims with breakfast.  Burguete is where the revisionist history moved the Battle of Roncesvalles to.  It was thought that it was noble that armies met and fought on open ground rather than at Valcarlos, in a valley, where the battle took place.

    Espinal 3.5km food shop, pharmacy and again a café that is open from early in the morning and caters to the passingpilgrims with breakfast and coffee, in the midst of the quaint narrow one street village.
