#Royal Palace of Olite

A 2-hour guided tour to explore the streets and history of Olite and why it was chosen as a place of royal residence, first by the Teobaldos and later by Carlos III and his family.

The monumental complex of the Royal Palace of Olite includes three areas: the Old Palace (now the National Parador), the ruins of the Chapel of San Jorge and the New Palace, known as the Olite Castle, the largest area and the only one that can be visited. The New Palace was built at the beginning of the s. XV, at the request of the King of Navarra Carlos III the Noble and his wife Doña Leonor de Trastámara. It is made up of a set of patios, rooms, moats and gardens, topped by numerous towers that can also be accessed. It was one of the most sumptuous palaces in Europe, with hanging gardens, running water, luxurious decoration and even exotic animals such as lions or camels. In 1813, the Palace suffered a devastating fire that reduced it to ruins. Fortunately, at the beginning of the 20th century restoration works began. Today it is the most important medieval monument in Navarra.
