I went here soon after the church opened in the afternoon. There were lots of tourists inside, laughing and taking photographs, and finally the man in charge of the church, turned off all the lights, except for two or three. That basically ruined it for the rest of us that just wanted to quietly enjoy the interior of this beautiful church. This place really is worth visiting, and everything is covered in glittering gold.

Iglesia de San Saturnino is a church with some history. It dates back to around the 13th century, but archaeological work shows there were at least two other churches on the same site previously. Quite interesting! In fact the church originally and for some time afterwards, acted both as a religious site as well as a defence fortification! The church is in the centre of the historic old part of Pamplona. It's a beautiful part too. Lovely narrow streets and colourful and architecturally beautiful buildings. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

We visited the church with our city tour guide. He talked about the history of the church and some of the interesting facts. For example the floor of the church had numbered sections that were previously places where people were entombed. Our guide believes that only the well off were able to be in the church. By the mid 1800’s the church decided to remove the bones and placed them in a cemetery out side the city center - pretty crazy! Also the exterior of the church has intricate carvings over the main entrance.
The church does not have a typical alter as most did in the time period. Also there were over 20 chapels that have very intricate woodwork which was the best I had seen on my trip which covered Barcelona, San Sebastián, Pamplona, Bilbao and Madrid.

A historic church tucked away in the 'casco viejo' (old town) of Pamplona. You'll have to check when the doors are open. The inside is ancient and authentic. Look down to the floor while you're walking and see what you'll find.

This church is only a few steps away from the tourist office and the Town Hall, the current church dates from the 13th century and is in the Gothic in style, but in the place where it stands there existed two churches, a Romanesque from the 12th century and another older. In the middle Ages it fulfilled the double function of church and fortress - in those times, not open on the moment of our visit, as it is allot of times when you are visiting Spain.

We popped into a side door and walked into a beautiful interior with what looked like two separate altar areas. When we walked out the other side...I completely forgot about taking a photo of the exterior as the church bells were ringing!

a church (two churches??) full of surprises. It feels like a siamese twin version of two churches combined into one .... lots of detail and great atmosphere. Worth a visit

Iglesia de San Saturnino is a beautiful, peaceful church...with architecture that speaks volumes - unique yet still the Gothic design. A must-visit in Pamplona!

The San Saturnino church is one of those surprisingly beautiful churches you can walk into unexpectedly in Spain. It was built in the 13th century in the location of earlier churches. A striking feature are the numbered creaking wooden floorboards under which there are graves. Also very striking is the skyblue ceiling of the church. In the St. Joseph chapel there is a nice sculpture of Joseph with the child Jesus.

This church has the original gothic worship area that has a porch along the street. Inside you see a larger addition that has a much more baroque sensibility, with the dichotomy being a bit overwhelming. The older part is more serene and definitely worth a look.
