Roncal

At the geographical centre of the valley sits the town of Roncal. It is worth visiting it to marvel at its treasures: stony streets in a Y-shaped layout around the river Esca that drop down steeply from the parish church, from where there is a splendid view of the town.

Very close to the church is the museum and house of Julián Gayarre, where a number of objects related to the famous tenor are stored together with extensive documents on his life. By the road you will find the Wildlife Information Centre, which brings local flora and fauna to life through audiovisual displays. Outside the centre of the village, the town’s cemetery is home to the Gayarre mausoleum.
