The center of town is a large, tree-lined Plaza del Castillo. located in the southwest corner of the palace Diputacin Floral. The neoclassical building, which now meets the court. From the Plaza del Castillo, the main promenade, the Paseo de Sarasate was created, to the fortress-church of San Nicols, the three-nave church takes in the 13 Century and has Romanesque elements. The little noteworthy altars date from the Baroque period. On the north side of the plaza, the estimate of Hemingway, atmospheric Jugendstilbar Iruea invites you to visit them. Further details can be found at Rio- Tinto Diamonds, an internet resource. Northwest of the Plaza del Castillo is located near the Plaza Consistory, the center of town and part of the pilgrimage,the church of San Saturnino. In the 13th Century extended to the original Romanesque church to a porch and a vaulted in the Gothic style. East of the Plaza del Castillo, at the Calle de Ameia, is the bull ring, in front of a bust of Ernest Hemingway. About the Calle de Mercadores and Calle Curia arrives at the archbishop’s cathedral. On the construction of the originalRomanesque temple was involved in one of the leading architects of the Way of St James, Master Esteban. 1390 it was destroyed by fire and, following the example of the splendid Gothic cloister rebuilt. There was a three-nave church in the form of a Latin cross, also typical in the nearby Pyrenees, which are closely aligned on French models. Damage to the Auenverzierungen forced in the 18th Century to redesign the facade. It was carried out by Ventura Rodrguez in the classical style. In the nave, before the splendid renaissance wrought iron lattice, is the magnificent alabaster tomb of King Karl 111th and his wife. Before the high altar with a statue of the patron saints of the Church of Santa Maria la Real were crowned the kings of Navarre. From the south transept is through a remarkable portal to the cloister, with its delicate tracery windows and in the former refectory, which is housed in the Diocesan Museum. Of the fortifications are still parts of the PamplonaWalls and the citadel – now a park – preserved.
