Old pilgrims’ Hospital of Lapoblación

The old pilgrims’ hospital of Lapoblación, located in Navarra, possibly dates from the end of the 15th century and is part of the historical legacy of the Camino de Santiago. This hospital, which was located near the parish church and bordered by a baroque house, is testimony to the important role played by medieval hospitals in the care and reception of pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela. Its doorways, adorned with representative reliefs such as the staff, the shell, the pumpkin and the pilgrim’s hat, offer a window to the past and reflect the essential function of these places on the pilgrimage route, providing care and shelter to devout travelers.
