Cobblestones are uneven, sinking over time into an ankle-breaking, knee-destroying obstacle course that not even my physical therapist would inflict on me. And Day 5 was long : a little over 27 kilometers 17 miles. The first 20 were remote, passing no towns or services. The sky was overcast but dry, leaving only patches of the miserable mud, and we mostly walked on logging roads through forests and past fields full of calves and lambs, the signs of spring. Here, at last, we found a place to sit and refuel with tortilla patata and our refueling beverage of choice coffee, beer, a shot of orujo…. We were all tired, my feet were throbbing, and it was tempting to stay in the perfectly interesting-looking convent albergue right there on the square in Markina. Zenarruza was still almost two hours and another meter climb away.

The monastery was expanded in the twelfth century. Several kings of Navarre were buried there.
