Located in the valley of Esteríbar, Larrasoaña is a small location. It is believed that its foundation dates back to the X century, probably linked to the monastery of San Augustine of Larrasoaina.
In its day it came to have three pilgrim hospitals. On the facade of one of its buildings the history of the enclave is recalled through the image of a shell and a staff. Nowadays it is a private house. The Church of San Nicholas of Bari is notable for its striking Gothic façade. The medieval bridge is more commonly known as "de los bandidos"(the bandits bridge).
According to legend, this used to be the meeting place for a gang of thieves who, disguised as pilgrims, would steal from the real pilgrims. There are two grocery shops. Amandi Denda (Sorandi, 2 | +34 638 191 329) and Casa Elita (Amairu, 7 | +34 948 304 449). On the street there are a few vending machines selling soft drinks, coffee and food.
If you are traveling on the Camino de Santiago or are planning to do so soon, you should know that the distance separating Larrasoaña from Santiago de Compostela is 724 kilometers.
