The monastery has long vanished, leaving the solitary Ermita de San Miguel Arcángel from the 10th or 11th century, just outside the pueblo of Villatuerta on the CF towards Estella. This church is one of the oldest in Navarre. Such a peaceful setting. From what I understand, on the feast day of St. Michael (September 29), the townsfolk come here for mass, and a picnic in a recreational area next to the church. What a nice way to celebrate a Saint!

Plaza Los Fueros in Viana. Viewed from the window of the refugio. It sprung to life after the siesta, with people talking and drinking and kids running around, playing and shouting. I loved that small town life on the camino.

Hi Wayfarer,
Here is our photo of the same view taken 8th, September, 2014 but we think it's taken from the Alto Meseta at 950m looking to Hornillos del Camino. We walked from Burgos to Hornillos del Camino that day. Your photo is a lot greener than ours. Both photos appear to be taken from the same vantage point.

Saint Jean Pied de Port, peppers 10.10. 20111.jpg

Basque seasoning

Red Espelette peppers provide a piquant taste in Basque cooking as a major ingredient in traditional piperade/pepper stew or as dry flakes sprinkled as seasoning.

On the Camino Frances several simple restos in Saint Jean Pied de Port, Arneguy and Valcarlos serve this hearty country fare.

This type of pepper is named for the town Espelette about 35 km NW of SJPdP; Chili pepper seeds were introduced to France during the 16th c. by seamen returning from Central /South America.

Esplette is on the Baztanes, where we rolled in one afternoon like 5 drowned mice after a drenching day from Bayonne. It was a very pretty town, and there were peppers hanging everywhere. But because of the heavy rain, I took no photos. Here is the next town along, Ainhoa, the next morning when we saw the first sun après le deluge.

Thanks for this shot! I have always dreamed of walking the Baztanes especially when using red pepper flakes.

Thanks guys, I will check my notes again. I walked in April/May, everything was green.

EDIT: You guys are right, the photo was taken the day we walked from Burgos to Hontanas.
Thank you @Anne&Pat

Cirueña on the CF. One of my favorite breakfasts ... Tortilla de patata, olives, and Cola Cao to keep away the cold. I liked it because it stayed with me for a few hours. And although I had tortilla de patata several times, it never came the same way twice! It's a very adaptable recipe, and I absolutely loved all the local variations. This one came with hot peppers ... perhaps peppers from Esplette? :) When I returned home I looked up a recipe and cooked one up for the family, along with a Tarta de Santiago of course! Both were hits!

About half way between Olveiroa and Cee, we think this is the 18thC wayside cross at Marco do Couto, seemingly there is an adjacent medieval marker-stone with the initials RC, which likely refers to the Royal Way to Finisterre Real Camino.

I admired the many different ways in which not only the general population of Spain acknowledge El Camino through their use of logos on businesses, signs, etc. but even various levels of government get in on the act with statues, sellos, areas de descanso, etc. I took this photo in O Pedrouzo, showing of all things, the cover of a storm sewer! I thought this one was particularly noteworthy because of the double use of the scallop shell theme. I think it would be a rather significant undertaking to design and cast these covers, never mind the myriad approvals that would be mandated by the bureaucracy of any level of government.

A little out of sequence. This was taken in the days approaching Santiago, weaving in and out between farmhouses.
