    Description :

    The Cathedral of Pamplona was begun in 1397 by Charles III, the Noble, and completed thirty years later. In 1234 Navarra had passed to the Counts of Champagne, and it was a French possession.

    Although Pamplona Cathedral is largely French, certain features are typically Spanish. For instance, the transepts are lit only by miniature rose-windows, and throughout the church the windows are very small, while the tracery is so heavy that it occupies as much as or more space than the glass.
