Pamplona

Cathedral of Pamplona's bells tolling at 7:30 pm,  quite loud and impressive.  There was a solemn mass starting with an entourage headed by a bishop.  Incense and choir entrance into a gothic beautiful building.  It's Tuesday so it must be a saints day. Ascension  maybe.  I've lost my sense of time.

We are at a new pension, cannot stay more than one day at an albergue as pilgrims.  We've walked 71 kilometers in 3 days and our feet backs and knees deserve a two-day break.  And this sophisticated city is where we are resting before continuing the trek to Santiago de Compostela.  Ten percent of the Camino is done.
