El Camino Ignaciano
known in English as The Ignatian Way, retraces the journey Ignacio de Loyola took from his family home of Loyola, in the Basque Country, to the monasteries of Montserrat and Manresa. Ignatius walked this path in 1522 after his spriritual awakening whilst recovering from his injuries after the Battle of Pamplona.
Ignatius of Loyola was at the Battle of Pamplona whilst serving the Duke of Najera. The Posada Ignatius is situated in what was the Duke of Najera’s residence in Navarrete and it is known that Ignatius spent much of his time at the residence whilst he was in the service of the duke.
The Ignatian Way makes a stop in Navarrete as Ignatius stopped off to collect money owed to him for his service to the Duke. Check availability here to book the unforgettable experience of stopping in the very same building Ignatius stopped in on his pilgrimage to Monserrat.
