A region of diverse landscapes, Navarra stretches from the majestic beauty of the Pyrenees with its watefalls and lakes, to the deserts of Bardenas, through to the green pastures of the wine growing region of La Ribeira in the south, all with medieval cities and villages scattered throughout celebrating their traditional festivals and ancient legends.
Even Shakespeare thought that Navarra should be the wonder of the world (a quote from Love's Labours Lost) due to the incredibly varied landscape of this beautiful region, from the rocky mountains and white water rivers in the north to the fertile pastures and La Ribera wine growing area to the south.
If history and culture are more for you, there are no end of well preserved medieval castles and monasteries to visit - not to mention the many ancient villages where the locals dress up to celebrate ancestral customs and medieval legends.
