Puente la Reina is an important stop on the Camino as the Camino Aragonés joins the Camino Francés just before Puente la Reina, at Eunate.
This small city takes its name after a bridge over the river Arga, whose construction was ordered in the 11th century by Munia (Muniadona), the wife of Sancho III, with the intention of facilitating the crossing of the river for pilgrims.
At the town entrance, next to the Iglesia del Crucifijo, the Knights Templar built a hospital for pilgrims, which today still serves as an Albergue.

Things To Do in Puente La Reina
The Roman Bridge
The seven-arched (one of the arches is under the ground) bridge spanning the river Arga, which gave the town its name, was built in the 11th century. It is one of the most iconic bridges on the Camino and one of the most well-known Romanesque bridges in the world.
Iglesia de Santiago
This parish church dates back to the 12th century, but most of what is seen today dates back to its reconstruction in the 16th century. Only the late Romanesque entrance of the church was preserved during later reconstructions. Inside, it hosts a statue known as the Black Santiago.
