First Sight of Roncesvalles
I’m just on the downhill section from the Ibaneta Pass down to Roncesvalles.
People did say this is hard on the knees,….it is. I’m taking the easier route around to the right, which is a slightly gentler route but a bit longer.
It’s certainly sore on the knees after all the uphill work.
The monastery is nestled down there amongst the trees in the forest at the bottom of the valley and it never seems to get any closer, but I can hear the bells of the clock tower now, which is really nice as I get closer and closer.
I had a brief look and a prayer or two in the church once I got there….amazing place.
A very good friend lent me his Rosary for the trip and it’s had a couple of uses already…..
