This village with its medieval layout emerges on a hillock in the middle of  the Jacobean pilgrim’s way  between Puente la Reina and Estella-Lizarra. Large, ashlar-stoned houses with coats of arms featuring the inscription of the owner’s name and the date of construction align both sides of the cobbled radial and concentric streets.

The town spreads out around  the church of San Román, a Gothic building with an ogival door and multi-lobed arches which, despite its numerous transformations, still has the appearance of a fortress. 

If you’re following the Pilgrim’s Road to Santiago, you’ll leave Cirauqui along  the Roman road, of which some sidewalks and paving stones remain, as well as a Roman bridge whose upper part was renovated in 1702.
