I attended a friend's funeral in it. While it's commemorated to St. Paul, there isn't a single mural or picture glass window with the likeness of the saint in question.

A very pretty church! When we came it smelled like candles and it was nice and warm inside. Perfect for a stop after a walk out in the cold!

Beautiful church with an outstanding external design and magnificent roof shape, both outside and inside. Recently renovated. Open 9- 16 on weekdays and during mass on weekends. Perfectly located on pedestrian boulevard street Kungsgatan, surrounded by green areas and several floor buildings with nice facades. Interior in light colours, simple but extremely elegant decoration where the highlight is the wooden ceiling and an magnificent hunging lamps in bronze. Octogonal shape creates a sensation of unity and seats in the upper floor makes it suitable for big religious celebrations. Besides the outstanding building Saint Pauli is a very active church with an interesting schedule of concerts and other activities.

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.
