Roncesvalles is in Navarra, Spain. It`s the first city on the Spanish side of the Camino Frances of the Way of St. James. Roncesvalles is a tiny settlement, yet it has sites worth seeing. Besides the lovely fir and oak forests and meadows surrounding it, the monastery complex offers several fascinating structures including 13th-century Colegiata de Santa María. The Collegiate is an excellent example of Navarran Gothic architecture and features the famous Virgin Mary of Roncesvalles, a wooden carving in a silver coating. According to legend, she miraculously appeared after a sighting of a stag whose antlers shone two stars.
