Porter’s, Romanesque Sculpture of the Pilgrimage Roads, published some eighty years ago. Note that Porter dealt only with Romanesque sculpture, pointedly ignoring Gothic, Mozarabic, Mudéjar, Baroque and all the rest, not to speak of the architectural gems with which each style is associated, and the priceless documents and other artifacts that come down to us from those tumultuous times. Nevertheless, despite the narrow limits of his topic, Porter required ten stout volumes to report his study.

Still climbing, the road passes through the village of Espinal and, a couple of kilometers later, you reach Burguete, known to Hemingway enthusiasts as the place where, in The Sun Also Rises, his characters spent several days fishing in a nearby stream. Burguete, just below Roncesvalles, is both modern and ancient. It boasts of several small, antiquated but comfortable hotels and restaurants along its narrow main street, the millennium-old footpath of pilgrims. It is still lined with fine old houses sporting fancy facades bearing the coats of arms of their Medieval and Renaissance tenants.

Sancho and his queen, Clemencia, are entombed here in the chapel of St. Augustine, which occupies the one-time chapter house adjacent to the main church. Set furthest apart from the monastery and thus the first historic structure we encounter, is the Church of the Holy Spirit. This is a Romanesque funerary chapel for unfortunate pilgrims whose dreams of traveling the Highway to Heaven died along with their worn out bodies here at the Hospital of Roland. The bones of many of those pilgrims repose in an ossuary inside the chapel.
