Landmark Tourist Spot
The Monastery of Royal Saint Mary of Iranzu is a Roman Catholic monastery located in Abárzuza, Navarre, Spain. It was founded by Pedro de Artajona in the late 12th century, being Artajona's place of burial upon his death in 1193. The Cistercian Order had a large part in its building throughout the 12th century. It was dissolved in 1839 and confiscated by the State. It was abandoned and became ruinous until 1942, when the Provincial Government of Navarre refurbished it. One year after, a Theatine Fathers community was established there. The Cistercian-style church was built during 12th century. The cloister is partly Cistercian (12th century) and partly Gothic (13-14th centuries). Additional minor Renaissance parts were added during 17th century.

  • Exudes peace and tranquility. The cloister is a marvel. The steps in the area are a huge attraction for approaching Iranzu. In the cafeteria a txistorra pintxo and a code will help you regain strength after the walk.

  • A surprise was the discovery of this monastery. I was unaware of the existence of the same and the monastic order that inhabits it; Teatinos.

  • Wonderful Cistercian Monastery in a setting of mountains and forests. Starts the visit in an austere cloister from where you can access the medieval kitchen with a large fireplace and a sample of then Accessories; the Church of Santa Maria, unadorned, large and cold (that he is appreciated much with the heat making out), but imposing; to the Chapter House where gathered for the Organization of the monastery monks; cells of punishment and a hexagonal basin. A door gives abroad to gain access to the Hermitage of San Andrés. At the exit there is a shop with souvenirs and typical food. Outside of the monastery there are crowded picnic areas.
