This is one of the certified Wine Routes of Spain, which is no surprise in an area with a long tradition of wine-making and whose range of rosé, red and white wines, held in high esteem by those in the know, fall under two D.O. classifications: Navarra and Rioja.
From July 6th to 14th every year the word fiesta is written in capital letters in Pamplona. The Sanfermines have arrived. When the chupinazo (ceremonial rocket) is fired the city explodes into life. Thousands of people from all over the world descend on the city, which dresses up in red and white. For nine days the streets turn into a feast of friendship, joy, music and non-stop partying, to the rhythm of the charangas and the peñas.
St James Way
Navarre is the Iberian Peninsula’s gateway to the Pilgrim’s Way to Santiago (also called St James Way). Along its 240km, many of Navarre’s artistic treasures as well as its natural and cultural diversity are revealed to the visitor, on a route that the ancient Kingdom’s monarch Sancho III ‘el Mayor’ promoted as official in the 11th century and that took the name of the French Route.
Get out and let yourself be tempted by the natural treasures hidden in our region. From the enormous Irati forest to the untamed desert of Bardenas Reales, and steep-sided gorges and delightful valleys… are just an example of our Land of Diversity.
The region’s popular cuisine uses all the products that the varied landscape of Navarre offers. Some of its restaurants have achieved international recognition thanks to their balance between traditional and nouvelle cuisine, and also thanks to the excellent quality of the raw material.
