Did you know that... Navarrete

 

Around the Tedeón hill and the old defensive castle, this town was built right in the middle of the French Way of Saint James. Great lineages alternated in its control, providing a splendour that is still preserved today, as evidenced by its old part and its walled layout. Its clay soils provide a splendid pottery tradition which, together with its history, gives Navarrete its characteristic traditional architecture.

To discover What to see in Navarrete?

 

We cannot miss one of the best works of the Baroque in La Rioja such as the Parish Church of the Assumption Mary and its impressive altarpiece. In the Calle Mayor we will find buildings decorated with coats of arms and ironwork that remind us of the link between the town and noble families and the importance that the Pilgrim's Way to Saint James has had in the development of Navarrete. Following the course of the Way, shortly before arriving in Navarrete, are the remains of the old Pilgrims' Hospital and House of the Order of Saint John of Acre. And on the outskirts of the town, in the direction of Nájera, we find the cemetery where we can see the front and a couple of windows belonging to the old Hospital.

Festivities

 

From 14 to 19 August, the festivities in honour of the Virgin and San Roque are celebrated. On 29 September, the patron saint of Navarrete, San Miguel, is celebrated.

 

Traditions

 

Among the most important celebrations of Navarrete it is worth mentioning, during the Christmas season, the Living Nativity Scene. Its beginnings date back to the early 80's and in its staging more than one hundred people from the village collaborate to give life to this show that gathers some outstanding passages of the Bible.

Curiosities

 

On the 3rd of February San Blas, in Navarrete, the Bollos del Santo (Saint's Buns) are prepared and blessed in the church, these buns are filled with chorizo and a layer of sugar. In the past, the buns were bought the day before. Oil or butter was added to the dough so that it would be tender from one day to the next. The young people of Navarrete went to the blessing of buns at 10 in the morning, in the afternoon they went to the nearby marsh to eat them and for dessert they took an orange with them. At present the blessing is done in the afternoon mass, and the buns are bought in the morning.
