Did you know that... Irotz

 

Belonging to the municipality of Esteribar, is located at the foot of Mount Iturratx, on the left bank of the river Arga. On 16 November 1794, the French, in a second attempt to reach Pamplona/Iruña, took Irotz and Zabaldika and were later rejected and forced to withdraw to their posts in Sorauren and Oloña. At the end of the foral period, it was governed by means of the deputy appointed by the valley, with the town councillor, elected by alternative houses. The bridge, also called Iturgaiz, in the year 1.550 received a logging canon.

To discover What to see in Irotz?

 

Their houses are scattered at the foot of the mountain and are characterised by their ashlar walls plastered with ashlar masonry in corners and openings. One of them has a cubic tower attached to one side and is located in the upper part of the village. The parish church of San Pedro is a modern construction, dating from 1920, although it follows 16th century style models. A tower with a cubic shaft and small windows is adjoined to the section of the choir on the Epistle side. Next to the door is a holy water fountain that may belong to a Romanesque style and is decorated with a relief that seems to be a fish, and also in this part we find a rococo altarpiece from the second half of the eighteenth century that lacks the carving of the holder. There is a Romanesque bridge built for the Pilgrim's Way to Santiago in the middle of the 11th century.
