A unique, magical and enchanting place
Aoiz is a village of the pre-pyrenee Navarra region, a very distinguished environment. Only 28 kilometers away from Pamplona and in the middle of the Lumbier and Aoiz basin. It is the perfect starting point to discover the marvellous natural areas crossed by the Irati river and shaded by the beautiful mount Izaga. The urban area is witness to its historic past, reflecting a rich cultural patrimony.
A special mention goes to the main cathedral, built in the 15th century over a romanic church, conserving the original tower. It is the most remarkable monument of Aoiz. The interior calls particular attention to the original baptismal font with the town’s coat of arms carved in stone (15th century), and most of all, the magnificent altarpiece created by Juan de aAnchieta in 1580, which has been incorporated with a baroque structure created in 17th century by Juan Tornes. Always inside the same cathedral , a statue of the virgin Mary with child and an image of the crucifixion, both by Anchieta.
Very close to the village you can find remarkable places, like the Castillo de Javier, birthplace of the saint, and the monasterio de Leyre, Roncesvalles, Artaiz…
