Out in the gardens for good pizza and beer. I will go back for sure some time.

Sitting here waiting for two pizzas to take-away. We have been waiting for 1 hour with a six month old baby, having just been informed that we have 10-15 minutes left to wait I've decided to write a review of the place now. I haven't eaten the pizza but I can promise you that it is not worth the wait. 155kr for the 'house' pizza and 185kr for the 'guest' is already wildly overpriced. Unfortunately I'm limited with a 1 star as the lowest I can mark this place. Do not come here. Support somewhere else.

Stone over baked pizza, tastes well, but not a lot of options. We had their regular pizza and a "guest pizza" with potatoes and sour cream to choose from. Both were good, though a bit pricy at 155sek each. The oven can only do 3 pizzas at once, so if you have a larger party or if there are a lot of people, you will have to wait for a good 30+ minutes to get the first 3, which will be cold if you wait for the others to arrive before eating. You can also see a bit of art in the form of sculptures and paintings in and around the stable where the pizzas are served. Not somewhere I go often, but worth a stop if you are hungry and nearby during summer.

Royal Palace of Olite

The Palace of the Kings of Navarre of Olite was one of the seats of the Court of the Kingdom of Navarre, since the reign of Charles III 'the Noble' until its conquest by Castile (1512). The fortification is both castle and palace, although it was built more like a courtier building to fulfill a military function.

On an ancient Roman fortification was built during the reign of Sancho VII of Navarre (13th century) and extended by his successors Theobald I and Theobald II, which the latter was is installed in the palace in 1269 and there he signed the consent letter for the wedding of Blanche of Artois with his brother Henry I of Navarre, who in turn, Henry I since 1271 used the palace as a temporary residence. This ancient area is known as the Old Palace.

Then the palace was housing the Navarrese court from the 14th until 16th centuries, Since the annexation (integration) of the kingdom of Navarre for the Crown of Castile in 1512 began the decline of the castle and therefore its practically neglect and deterioration. At that time it was an official residence for the Viceroys of Navarre.

In 1813 Navarrese guerrilla fighter Espoz y Mina during the Napoleonic French Invasion burned the palace with the aim to French could not make forts in it, which almost brought in ruin. It is since 1937 when architects José and Javier Yarnoz Larrosa began the rehabilitation (except the non-damaged church) for the castle palace, giving it back its original appearance and see today. The restoration work was completed in 1967 and was paid by the Foral Government of Navarre.
