Did you know that... Burlada

 

In a practically flat landscape, Burlada-Burlata is located to the right of the river Arga in which the river Ulzama has just given its tribute of water, in the northeast end of the periphery of Pamplona-Iruña. In the first documents it appears as Bruslada, Bruslata and Buruslata. The history of Burlada is marked by the Way of Saint James. In the 12th century two brotherhoods were born to protect so many pilgrims in need of warmth and food: the Brotherhood of San Salvador and the Brotherhood of San Juan Bautista. The bishop of Pamplona-Iruña donated to the Brotherhood of San Salvador the church of San Salvador and later a plot of land so that the house of the association could be built on it with the condition of attending to the poor.

A little more history

 

The Confraternity of St. John the Baptist also created its assistance center. The kings of Navarre spent time in the palace they arranged in Burlada-Burlata, holding tournaments and festivities. In 1.494 the Courts of his name took place in Burlada in which the Courts of the kingdom were substantially reformed. When the lordships were abolished, Burlada-Burlata formed part of the valley of Egüés, remaining in this situation until very recently. The municipality of Burlada-Burlata was constituted as such in September 1970.

To discover What to see in Burlada?

 

The old part of Burlada-Burlata has been very reduced and almost hidden by the modern part. A 16th century palace stands out. From the primitive parish of San Juan Bautista we know that it was Romanesque, but there are no remains, the current church dates from the mid-twentieth century. It has a municipal park that is an extensive garden that surrounds a beautiful palace burladés. Burlada-Burlata also has a medieval bridge made up of six semicircular arches that seem to have been modified at different times.

Traditions

 

The Martingala de Burlada, which is how the Burlada-Burlata carnival is known, is one of the most curious traditions celebrated in the locality. On Carnival Monday afternoon, the old town of Burladés is enveloped in the jolgorio of the Joasikeroak (masked), who, armed with tambourines and brooms and ringing small bells, will capture Lukas de Aierbe, whom they will capture and walk around the village. To celebrate his capture, they will dance the Martingala and make their tambourines sound, attacking brooms that are left behind watching the parade. Then Lukas of Aierbe, will not be able to prevent already in the night of Tuesday to be judged by the Zorrotzak, judges, before the presence of the Joasikeroak and will be hanged and burned in the bonfire between the shouting and the dances of the Joasikeroak. Lukas de Aierbe was a character, from Tolosa, who lived in Villava-Atarrabia and starred in pseudo-bewitch episodes in Burlada-Burlata. He was a healer and, according to accounts, he threw out the spirits.
