The castle-palace of Olite was the residence of the kings and queens of the kingdom of Navarre until its union with Castile in the 16th century. It was declared a National Monument in 1925. During the 13th-15th centuries it underwent several transformations, although the most important developments took place at the time of King Charles III the Noble.
