Tudela is the second most important city in Navarra. It is located south of the community, nestled in the valley of the Ebro. It was founded by the Muslims in the ninth century, and from that time became the place of coexistence of three cultures: Arab, Christian and Jewish.
The most important monuments in Tudela are its Cathedral (12th-13th century), the churches of La Magdalena and San Nicolás, the bridge over the Ebro River, several palaces in the old town, such as the Marquis of Huarte (now the Archive and Library), the Marquis of San Adrián (now the UNED), and stately homes such as the Almirante and the Ibáñez-Luna.
We will also highlight the nerve center of the city, the Plaza Nueva or Plaza de los Fueros, a magnificent example of seventeenth-century urban planning, following the constructive example of the Spanish baroque main squares.
