Estella-Lizarra The Essential
Recommended
Estella-Lizarra lies on both banks of the Ega and is divided into "parishes" that have expanded without losing their character. The elegance of its brick and stone façades is a reminder of the illustrious past of this town, which the kings of Navarre elected as their residence in the 12C. Estella was an important staging post on the Way of St James; as a result it boasts several monuments of great artistic value, mostly dating from the Romanesque period. Pilgrims came here to venerate the Virgin of the Puy. Don't leave without tasting the local speciality: milk-fed pig, which is so well prepared here it is said to be the best in the region.
