Iratxe. Monastery and Wine Fountain

This was the first pilgrims’ hospital in Navarra which the Benedictines began to build in the second half of the 11th century. In its long history it has been a university, a war hospital, and a church school. Its church has a Romanesque chevet and a Cistercian main section; its main gateway and that of San Pedro are also Romanesque.
