We took the audio tour as the guided tour is only in Spanish. The climb to the top of the towers is worth doing as the views of the surrounding town and countryside are beautiful. Part of this castle is a parador, you can stay there, it's very nice. One or two nights is enough. The little town is also... More

Well worth visiting. We had an English audio tour and this was very informative. The views from the towers over the surrounding countryside are breath taking.

You are in a real medieval time if you go to Olite, times has stopped there, also, close to it, there is a wine cellar to spoil your senses with the most tasty wine in the region. The castle is a fairy tale one!

The Kings of Navarre were no slouchers when it came to their royal residence in Olite. The castle and palace are in the heart of the town, and the whole ensemble is spectacular from every angle. The old town around it is very nice, too. Not to miss!

Reconstructed from 1916 to 1990s this is a wonderful example of a Spanish castle. Really interesting place to wonder around, with good signs and explanations.

This is one of the most outstanding palaces we have visited in Spain. The tour is well done and you should not miss the palace.

My husband and I visited Olite in October, 2014. The town is situated as a convenient stopping place on the way to several other towns and cities in the area. It is quite close to Pamplona and Zaragoza, two cities we also visited on our trip to Spain. The palace is amazing. In some respects it reminds me of the... More

Well worth a visit, the castle has been restored from the ruin that it had become. The views from the towers are worth the climb.

Taking the bus from Pamplona to Olite was relatively simple and not very much money and the views on the way were pretty amazing. Do not be easily carsick, as it is pretty curvy on the road there. Once there you seem to have gone back in history to this beautifully maintained castle. I felt it was well worth the... More
