Zubiri is practically an obligatory stop for pilgrims. This quiet village of little more than 400 inhabitants is the capital of Valle del Esteribar, a long and narrow valley that follows the course of the river Arga.
The valley of Esteríbar is strategically situated. The end of Rome on the Peninsula, The Arab attacks towards French soil, Napoleon's attempt to expand his empire to the south ... all of these episodes occurred on this land, so calm today. Historically, Esteríbar was also known as The Valley of the hunters (El Valle de los Cazadores).
If you are traveling on the Camino de Santiago or are planning to do so soon, you should know that the distance separating Zubiri from Santiago de Compostela is 752 kilometers.
