If there is a point that best represents the Camino de Santiago in the Navarrese community, it is the Alto del Perdón. Located in the Sierra del Perdón, it is a point located at an altitude of 770 meters from where you can enjoy one of the most beautiful panoramic views of the French Way. From there you can enjoy the landscapes located south of Pamplona as well as the typical villages and fields of this community.
While the views that can be seen from this point make it a unique place, the monument to the pilgrim located there is already a symbol of the Camino de Santiago. This monument consists of different silhouettes in sheet metal representing pilgrims from various eras, since thousands of pilgrims pass through this place every year, and all pilgrims who are traveling the Pamplona - Puente la Reina stage can enjoy this magnificent monument that ends a steep ramp 2.4 kilometers long.
In addition to being an emblematic point of Navarre and the French Way, the Alto del Perdón is the setting for one of the most famous legends of the Camino de Santiago. It is said that while a young man was ascending to the Alto del Perdón the devil appeared to offer him water if he denied God. This happened several times until finally the Apostle appeared and chased him away and offered water to the pilgrim to quench his thirst.
