    Had long wanted to visit her, but the works were preventing me. Finally today was lucky enough to be able to do so while there was cult and I have been able to enjoy and much of it. Despite end of seeing large French cathedrals, really spectacular, I h result a pretty Church. Three ships, a good Gothic, a gracious polychrome sculpture of Saint Nicholas, of great tradition in Pamplona, and various Baroque altarpieces, perfectly preserved, make it a small Cathedral. But its body Baroque, with very important dimensions and fantastic sculptures, have given fame to be among the best in the city, if not the best. A delightful visit.

  • It was fine and nice place to look around
  • One of the best-known churches in Pamplona as central location. The building has been renovated almost in its entirety, so remarkable is its good preservation. On one side it has an altarpiece dedicated to the Virgen del Pilar.
