Did you know that... Zariquiegui - Zarikiegi

 

It is an obligatory pass of the French Way, and it is situated in a high area from where you can see the valley and the surrounding villages, especially the palace of Guenduláin, which had to be a reference point for the establishment of nobility in the region. The Hospitallers of Saint John of Jerusalem and the Monastery of Irache possessed estates in their area since the 12th century. In 1227, Peter, abbot of Irache, granted Sancho, abbot of Zariquiegui-Zarikiegi, and his sons, the inheritance he already possessed, so that he could enjoy it as a collazo of the monastery and arrange for the tax to be paid.

The Legend

 

Shortly before reaching the summit, on the slopes of the mountain, there is a fountain of clear water known in the past as the Reniega fountain, today it is marked with the name of Gambellacos. According to an old legend, the devil appeared here in the form of a handsome young man to a thirsty pilgrim who climbed the port in the middle of summer. The devil offered him the possibility of refreshing himself and drinking if he denied God, but the traveller rejected the offer, then tempted him again, telling him that it would be enough to renounce the Virgin Mary to receive the precious liquid, which the man again refused, Satan insisted that he renounce then the apostle James to get the water, but the pilgrim in reply began to pray and the devil disappeared in a cloud of sulfur, instead appeared James dressed as a pilgrim and took him to the hidden fountain, giving him to drink with his scallop the crystal clear water.
