On entering Cizur Menor the Church of San Miguel Archangel stands out, which once formed part of a sanjuanista monastery with a hostel for pilgrims on route to Santiago.
It was abandoned in 1836 (under the confiscation of Mendizabal) and, was later recovered by the Government of Navarra. Currently, the knights of the order of Malta who have chosen to return it to its origins manage this temple and, in a building very close to the temple they continue to offer the pilgrims rest.
Cizur Menor also has a deserved reputation for serving the best meat in the area. Every day, a steady trickle of residents from Pamplona travel a couple of kilometres to eat in the steakhouses of this residential area. The vast majority of restaurants are located at the entrance and are well sign posted.
If you are traveling on the Camino de Santiago or are planning to do so soon, you should know that the distance separating Cizur Menor from Santiago de Compostela is 703 kilometers.
