Monastery of Leire, Castle of Javier, Royal Palace of Olite and Ujue Church-fortress


Our first stop will be Ujue church-fortress, where we will visit one of the most important and impressive fortification of Navarre. I will introduce you to its history and the importance of its location in the Kingdom of Navarra, its amazing views covering most of the former Kingdom.

Then we go to Olite. In this beautiful village of Navarre, we will walk along its streets; we will enjoy its Santa María la Real Façade; the architecture of its old Palace, and of course, we will enter into the famous Royal Palace of Olite to visit it, where I will give you a private guided tour.

After having lunch we will visit the Monastery of Leyre, known to have been built before the 9th Century. Many of the Kings of Navarre are buried here, good proof of the importance of this place in the History of Navarra.

Finally, we visit the Castle of Javier, where St Francis Xabier was born in 1506.

A Recent Review of this tour

Very attentive and accommodating guide I've ever had the pleasure to work with. All logistics including bull fighting tickets were arranged prior to my visit. So that all I had to do is enjoy my day. And enjoy it I did! Thank you Javier.
