Flags, banners, torches and mediaeval clothes transport the visitor to the heart of the Middle Ages. In mid July
holds its mediaeval week. After the opening speech read by the King of Navarre himself a very varied programme of events begins: tasting of mediaeval recipes, minstrels, jousts between knights, tradesmen's skills, street events, falconry displays, concerts, mediaeval dinners, markets and many more. It is a long-standing festivity that the whole town supports actively. People in mediaeval dress promenade through the streets and markets.
