Once in Irun, we checked into the Pension Lizaso (50€) and looked for an open church to get our first stamp in the credencials. That proved tougher than planned, even in Catholic Spain. Eventually we got into a church at evening adoration and found a priest. With the stamp of the Sagrada Familia church now in our credencials, we are officially on our way.
We also walked across the French border into Hendaye, just to say that we again began our walk in France. The bridge between the countries here is, of course, Santiago’s Bridge.
