Museums

The Museo de Navarra is a wonderful museum located inside the former Hospital of Our Lady of Mercy. Trace the history of Navarra chronologically from the top of the building to the bottom over 4 floors. In the basement you'll find exhibits from prehistory including Roman architectural remains and the restored Mosaic of Theseus and the Minotaur. On the next 2 floors, medieval art, Gothic sculptures, and artworks from the Baroque era and 19th century fill the rooms. The top floor is reserved for artworks from the 20th century including a Francisco de Goya portrait and a section of contemporary works by Navarra artists.
