A pilgrims' hospice, university, military hospital, religious college and, in the future, a Parador. These are the different functions that the Monastery of Iratxe has performed down the years, which have turned it into one of the most important monumental complexes in Navarre.
Its location, on the Pilgrim's Way to Santiago de Compostela near Estella-Lizarra, has made it an obligatory stopping-place for pilgrims and friends of the Pilgrim's Way, who you will see during your visit to this monastery that the Benedictines started building in the second half of the 11th century on top of another older one from the 8th century.
A tour of the Romanesque church (12th century), the Plateresque cloister, the Herrerian-style tower and other sections built between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries will give you an insight to the history of this monumental construction, which has been uninhabited since 1985.
