Gross Zicker Church

Groß Zicker, Germany

Gross Zicker brick church was erected with a flat-roofed nave and a rib-vaulted choir around 1360. In 1835 the half-timbered roof tower was rebuilt. Among the preserved medieval furnishings are the altar cross, a bronze bell and the tabernacle, which was carved from a single oak trunk. The Baroque pulpit is also worth mentioning (built in 1653).

13th century, brick Gothic, local history, legends and myths woven around, generations of monks' goods who have found their burial place here ... small cozy community and prayer room that has experienced drama, grief, love, birth and devotion for centuries ... ..

Unfortunately, the old village, where fishing and agriculture worked together, cannot be recognized again. What do I give the village of 1 star or 5 stars? But the Groß Sickerer have always been business-minded and knew how to harness their summer guests. Anyway, I got my first intoxication and my first kiss here and that was around 60 years ago. That's why it gets stars

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.
