Lumbier

4.4
Lumbier is a village in Spain and a municipality of the Chartered Community of Navarre, in the province and autonomous community of Navarre, in the north of Spain, 38 km from the capital of the community Pamplona. It has a population of about 1400. It stands on the River Salazar in a region of natural interest. It also has interesting historical connections.Place nameIt is believed that the present village of Lumbier goes back to ancient times to the communities of the Vascones mentioned by Roman geographers such as Pliny the Elder which included those known as the iluberritani, which traditionally have been associated with the village of Lumbier. Some Roman remains have been found in Lumbier and the remains of a Roman and Celtic villa have been found in the nearby municipality of Liédena.Starting from its ancient name of Ilumberri, linguists have reconstructed the development of its present forms. In the Romance Languages: Ilumberri -> Lumberri -> Lumbier. In the Basque Language: Ilumberri -> Irunberri. Regarding the etymological significance of Ilumberri, it is believed that it comes from archaic Basque. The first part seems to be the same as in place names such as Irún or Iruña (Pamplona), and it has been traditionally associated with the word hiri o (h)ili (town) in Euskera. The second part berri means 'new'; thus its etymological meaning would be similar to 'new town'.
