Etapa 4:Pamplona-Puente dela Reina (23,6 km)
(2)Cizur Menor-(3)Zariquiegui:5,0-11,0(6,0 km)
(6)Obanos-(7)Puente de la Reina:21-23,6(2,6 km)
We leave behind the first city of the Camino , Pamplona, and will arrive arrive at the end of the stage to the plains of Navarra and Rioja. From Pamplona to Zariquiegui it is uphill, but not to steep and along good roads. From Zariquiegui to the peak of Perdon we will meet the most difficult hills of the stage, which bring us to a field of wind turbines and a metal sculpture that symbolizes the evolution of the Camino de Santiago. From the peak of Perdon there is a big drop down to Uterga. In Obanos we will meet pilgrims who have chosen the Camino Aragones which starts in Somport. At the end of the stage we will find one of the most beautiful bridges of the camino which gives its name to the locality, El Puente de la Reina.
For cyclists we suggest two alternatives. Before arriving to Zariquiegui or, if you prefer, at the peak of Perdon. You can avoid here the steep drop from the peak of Perdon, by a very difficult path for bicycles.
1.-Pamplona-Cizur Menor: 0-5.0
We leave Pamplona along calle Mayor, crossing the Ciudadela park, continuing along calle Fuerte de Hierro and exiting through the Campus gardens of the University of Navarra (see photo 1). We cross the medevil bridge of Azella (see photo 2) which allows us to follow alongside the river Sadar and continue along a footpath along the road (see photo 3). This bike track on a slight incline, leads us directly to Cizur Menor.
2.-Cizur Menor-Zariquiegui: 5.0-11.0(6.0 km)
We cross Cizur Menor through a residential area (see photo 4) until the 6.4 km where we leave the tarmacadam onto a path on the left (see photo 5) which is firstly of gravel (see photo 6) but afterwards becomes a stone path (see photo 7). We continue along the path which crosses the NA-6004 highway (see photo 8) and continue along a slight incline between bushes (see photo 9) until we arrive at the small lake of Guendolain (see photo 10).
At this point, if you are doing the camino by bicycle there is an alternative route that leaves the camino off to the right. This way takes us across a bridge over the the A-12 motorway and to the NA-1110 which will take us to Uterga. You must look at the signs because we will leave the N1110 further onto a secondary road (see photo: bicycle detour 2) which leads to the town of Uterga.
If we continue along this way it will take us along a slight ascent (see photo 11) until the small town of Zariquiegui (see phot 12).
3.-Zariquiegui-Uterga: 11-16.8(5.8 km)
We leave Zariquiegui and continue the ascent which at times can be difficult (see photo 13) until we get to the wind turbines (see photo 14) where we meet the peak of Perdon. On the peak of Perdon is there is a prominent piece of artwork by Vicente Glabete (see photo 15) which represents a caravan of pilgrims from different times symbolising the evolution of the Camino de Santiago.
At the peak of Perdon we come to a road. For the cyclists who opted to come up here they are recommended to take the road on the right (see photo: bicycle detour 1) until the national road NA-111 which leads to Uterga. You must look at the signs because further along you leave the NA-111 onto a secondary road (see photo: bicycle detour 2) which leads to the town of Uterga.
For the pilgrims walking a difficult descent through scrub awaits you. Two gates and a bridge have to be crossed before arriving to Uterga (see photo 16).
4.-Uterga-Muruzabal: 16.8-19.5(2.7 km)
At the exit of Uterga we go down along a dirt track and continue along a path between fields of wheat (see photo 17) and fruit trees. Without any other complications we arrive at Muruzabal (ver foto 18).
We cross Muruzabal along the NA-6062 road and at the exit of the town we leave along a path to the right (see photo 19) which brings us directly to Obanos which is nearby. In Obanos the Camino Aragones which the pilgrims start in Somport meets with the Camino Frances which starts in Roncesvalles.
6.-Obanos-Puente de la Reina:21-23,6(2,6 km)
We cross Obanos following the arrows that lead us to a small path (see photo 20) which brings us to the hostel “ el Albergue Jakue. At this point the path connects to the N-111a road along which we enter Puente de la Reina.
