A walk along the cobbled streets of Estella-Lizarra
evokes the origins of this town, which developed as a result of the fervour surrounding the Pilgrim's Way to Santiago
Come and be fascinated by the neighbourhood of San Pedro, follow the course of the Pilgrim's Way, and discover the Gustavo de Maeztu Museum. This monographic exhibition is housed in the Palace of the Kings of Navarre
, the only example of civil Romanesque architecture
in the Community, which has remained as a faithful witness of the glories of this burgh in times past.
The building, which was remodelled in 1991, houses the legacy of the multi-talented artist Gustavo de Maeztu y Whitney
(1887-1947), who was born in Vitoria but lived in Estella-Lizarra until his death. The museum contains a significant part of his artistic and graphic work, structured around the feminine form, portraits, still-lifes and landscapes. As well as a selection of drawings of various genres and techniques, you can also see the research carried out by Maeztu in the field of plastics, touching on his literary facet.
