  • If you pass by the Plaza of St. Nicholas or his street try to enter this church. Most interesting inside that on the outside. The restoration of its exterior is well and resembles a fortress. Inside a beautiful altar and a beautiful chapel of the Virgen del Pilar. If you look at the ground are numbers that indicate the places that were once buried parishioners. Welcome visit.

  • I could say as they say others. the fortified church of St. Nicholas, from the 12th century, was the main religious building in the village of San Nicolas. Its main mission consisted in defending the village against the neighbors, hence its thick walls and gates and their three watch towers, of which only one, reformed in 1924... but also for my church which inside is cozy, mixing the classic of a church of his time with the modern (lamps) and make church a place of worship very welcoming. also worth mentioning is the best churches in the Centre of Pamplona for weddings, already in a zoma with large sidewalks and especially by its body which is amazing.
