Ibañeta Pass

Ibañeta Pass Review

This 3,468-foot pass, above Roncesvalles, is a gorgeous route into France. A menhir (monolith) marks the traditional site of the legendary battle in The Song of Roland, during which Roland fell after calling for help on his ivory battle horn. The well-marked eight-hour walk to or from St-Jean-Pied-de-Port (which does not follow the road) is one of the most beautiful and dramatic sections of the Santiago pilgrimage.
