Extraordinary location and spectacular views. It is worth visiting and learning a little more about the history of the kingdom of Navarra

It is interesting to see how, year after year, the town's volunteers, together with archeology professionals, shape what was once one of the main castles of the Kingdom of Pamplona.

From Eguillor a walk of approximately 2 km. Well signposted, with a couple of information panels. Not much remains of what was once this medieval fortress, but the setting is worth it.

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
