    There is an interesting remain of a road & a stone-bridge of Roman times right on the Camino, after you have left Cirauqui / Zerauki. jou simply have to walk about 500 meters in order to get to that ancient part of the Camino.
    Oh gosh, my poor knees really hated to walk on these ancient stones.

    You will find some really great local architecture in Cerauqui / Zerauki. Cerauqui is the spanish name and Zerauki is the basque name for the village and in the basque language it means „Kreuzotternnest“, (=nest of European Vipers). The village looks quite impressive from the distance, but in fact it has just 500 inhabitans.

    Dont miss to take a closer look at the church-gate of the Saint Roman-church of Cirauqui / Zirauki. These row of small arches that make the top of the door-ornaments is typical for gothic churches in the Province of Navarra / Provincia de Navarra.
    This church is really quite impressive for a village with just 500 inhabitants.

    To Zirauki you will get on an easy path,and mostly that path is seperate from the car-trafic when you walk the Camino. Only when you get into the town of Zirauki the path is going steeply uphill a bit for some meters. There is also something special here in this village, when you walk through the arches of the townhall: you will find a "selo" - that is the stamp of this village for the Pilgrim-pass / Credetial inside that arch and you have to stamp your Credetial there yourself (in my last picture you will see that arch with the table & the stamp, next to my walking-sticks)

    From Cirauqui it is still 698 km to Santiago de Compostela !

    In Cirauqui you will also find a lot of fancy, ancient doors & door-knockers, just keep your eyes open while walking the Camino and you will see a lot of interesting local architecture that way. Most of the ones that are shown here are from the street right after the first towngate of Zirauki / Cirauqui.
