Museum of Navarre

Pamplona, Spain

The Museum of Navarra is the art museum of Navarre. It is located in the old hospital of 16th-century Nuestra Señora de la Misericordia de Pamplona, converted to museum only in 1956. The origins of the collection are works obtained by a provincial Commission in 1844, and displayed in 1910 at what is now the Cámara de los Comptos. To the right of the entrance is the facade of the church of the hospital.

The exhibits in the four story museum is chronologically arranged, starting from prehistoric works to the 20th-century.

Forget Goya, the painting from the 1930s and today have more life!

One of the coolest museums I've been to. Great history, fantastic major pieces of art. A real sleeper.

Very interesting, not all the exhibitions were to our taste but nonetheless worth a viewing. The exhibitions are spread over several floors so there are stairs to climb but there is also a lift.

Interesting and complete museum about the community of Navarra. From prehistory to our days in 5 different exposition floors. It worth the visit!

Kristiansten Fortress

Kristiansten Fortress was built to protect the city against attack from the east. Construction was finished in 1685. General Johan Caspar von Cicignon, who was chief inspector of kuks fortifications, was responsible for the new town plan of Trondheim after the great fire of 18 April 1681. He also made the plans for the construction of Kristiansten Fortress.

The fortress was built during the period from 1682 to 1684 and strengthened to a complete defence fortification in 1691 by building an advanced post Kristiandsands bastion in the east and in 1695 with the now vanished Møllenberg skanse by the river Nidelven. These fortifications were encircled by a continuous palisade and thereby connected to the fortified city. In 1750 the fortress was modernized with new bastions and casemates to protect against mortar artillery.
