  • The church is a Gothic building that shows evident, in the refined facade, the direct influence of workers from the Parisian yards of Notre Dame. The polychrome facade is one of the most significant Gothic sculptural groups in the region. The decoration is abundant, but also delicate and balanced. Under a large rosette, the facade is formed by eight arches on which appears a rich vegetable decoration. Among the fronds you can see two figures hinged under the dosles; probably Joan I of Navarre and her husband the King of France Philip the Beautiful, rulers of Navarre at the time of the construction of the facade. Scenes from Jesus' life alternate with symbolic and grotesque scenes. The great profusion of images and decorations is also prolonged on both sides of the door. Recent restorations have also recovered some of the original colors that decorated the facade. To make the whole thing very special, the church is anticipated by a large open portica, almost a cloister that makes the complex facade more airy and pleasant. The interior is a single aisle (entry euro 2.50), in Gothic French, with a large wooden retablo painted at the main altar.

  • Main Church of Olite. Gothic style, it stands out for its entrance of an archery,the mode of cloister. Inside you can see a well-preserved altarpiece, with several biblical passages. The most interesting and beautiful thing about this monument is the main facade, with two series of sculptures on either side of the main portico, impressive Gothic style. It still retains much of the original polychromia. Seen from the main access of the archery creates a very iconic stamp

  • Beautiful Church, next to the Gothic Palace. It's beautiful both on the outside and on the inside that it deserves to come in to see it.
