This had almost a Game of Thrones or Tolkien feel about it. This Royal Palace of Navarre provides continual surprises from the Throne of the Four winds ( and you can see why when you visit) to the Tower of the Three Crowns. The views...More

Quite a bit of effort and money must have gone into restoring this small castle. It is in keeping with the local stone used elsewhere in the town. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

This is a beautifully restored castle. A beautiful drive from Pamplona (30-40 min) and you see this fairytale castle and it's' just like the one in Disneyland. Better, cuz it's real! Lots of rooms to explore, many picture spots and beautiful views from the turrets....More

An amazing building in itself, with the added bonus of incredible views over the town and surrounding countryside. The entry fee of just 3.50€ is very reasonable. The plan of the palace, in English, was easy to follow and was extremely informative. Lots of stairs...More

If you are in Olite then this is worth a visit for 3.50 euros per person. There are a great many steps, especially if you want to climb up all the towers. The inside is very plain but it is the views that are the...More

This interesting building is devoid of all furnishings which might have given you an idea of what it was when inhabited. Some good views, and definitely worth a visit if you are in Olite, but after a while empty room after empty room seemed repetitive.

We didn't book a tour and therefore walked the palace on our own and enjoyed every minute of it. I would recommend planning about 2 hours this way you can enjoy the views from all the different towers and within. There is... More
