A small town at the heart of the Navarra region, Olite was once the capital of a mediaeval kingdom, and this proud heritage is still visible in the well-preserved historic old town with its labyrinth of stately homes, Roman walls, Gothic arcades and charming churches. The undoubted highlight is the magnificent Royal Palace, the former court of the Kings of Navarre, and one of the most luxurious medieval castles in Europe. Built over a 13th century fortress that in turn was erected over Roman remains, it was largely designed by Charles III in a unique Gothic style combining French and Islamic influences.
