Top destinations in the Region of Navarra (Navarra)

An Overview of some of the Destinations in the Region of Navarra.

There are approximately 25 towns and villages that form an ancient wine route and a well-trodden path for pilgrims visiting the Christian shrines en route to and from the Pyrenees mountains. Here is just a fraction of such towns, that are loaded with culture, charm, historic sites from the iron age, there are many artefacts remaining from Muslim emirate of Al-Hakam I in 802,  the Roman occupancy, the middle ages and present day!

      

Pamplona:

Let's start with the capital city of Navarra, This medieval city is home to numerous monuments, with its Cathedral, and the holy shrine of Santiago de Compostela. which attracts pilgrims of faith from all over the world. The residents are an energetic and lively population, who are great hosts to the millions of pilgrims it received every year. The Pamplonions festivals are a means of demonstrating their great Christian culture, their passion for life, and work.
The annual, 'Running of the Bull festival' is one extraordinary example of a mass participation in a centuries-old tradition, which invites the free running of intimidating bulls through the streets of the city. (This for many of us we might find a somewhat cruel to these majestic animals and extremely dangerous for both man and beast! 


        


      


Tudela & Bardenas Reales are neighbouring municipalities and share the same terrain:

This municipality city of Tudela and its back yard the impressive  is the second largest city in the region of Navarra.They provide one of the most diverse landscapes.From lush pastures to arid desert terrains.
The Bardenas Reales Natural Park is a semi-desert landscape which covers 42.500 hectares of unforgettable elements of wildlife and beauty. This area has been declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. Undoubtedly for its rock formations/erosions which have been sculptured over millions of years, from the winds that gust like waves from the sea, through the lower valleys neighbouring Pyrenees mountains which are a mere 70 Kms away. Heading a little further South the landscape then changes to become a mellow range of Aleppo pinewoods. 


      
                                                                       
             

Baztan Valley & Elizondo Navarre:

Olite:

Another of the many picturesque destinations in the region of Navarra. This relatively small municipality offers its visitors and settlers some of the most wonderful examples of middle age villages, romantic Castles, Roman theatres, monasteries, and vineyards, that produce the famous Navarra Wine.
