Olite castle-palace was the former residence of the Kings of Navarre until the union of the kingdom with Castile in the 13th century. Declared a National Monument since 1925. During the 13th-14th centuries underwent alterations, but the most important development came during the times of King Carlos III the Noble. The tour can start in the Palacio Viejo, today a Parador, Santa María Gothic Church, and the Romanesque church of San Pedro, that has a cloister and a Gothic tower topped with a spire.
