  • It is one of the most important Gothic buildings in Navarre. Their artistic beauty is as interesting as his story. Attached to the Royal Palace, a favorite residence of King Carlos III the Noble, was used by Navarrese monarchs for great festivities and solemn events. Inside the temple, of only one nave, await a Renaissance altarpiece presided over by a Gothic carving of the Virgin and the also Gothic image of the Christ of the good death. The façade is one of the most significant collections of Gothic sculpture in Navarre. Despite the decorative profusion, maintains a great balance and finesse. You can be seen in her work of several teachers and the influence of the Parisian workshops. Under a large rose window, the large cover is formed by eight archivolts which display exuberant plant décor. Among the litter you will discover two orantes figures under canopies; possibly the case of Juana I of Navarre and her husband the King of Francia Felipe el Hermoso, who reigned in Navarre at the time in which the home was built.

  • Fantastic church, if you like romanesque. We took the "sound and light" tour. It's a recorded tour that lights up the areas it is talking about. I thought the entry is a masterpiece.
  • Preciosa
  • Wonder of art in the heart of Spain. Very characteristic its portico.
