You know what they say… “Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition”.

The legends of witchcraft, magic potions, covens, exorcism and persecution are bound into the mountainous landscape of Navarre, in Northern Spain. The local tourist board has mapped out the Witchcraft Route, four itineraries to discover traditions and curiosities alive in these lands. Enter the enigmatic world of the occult while enjoying gastronomic traditions and the authentic magical essence of the region. Visit the cave of Zugarramurdi on the 18th August, rituals are revived in the zikiro-jate, a collective meal featuring roast lamb on a stake. The Inquisition operated in more than 60 towns and villages in Navarre.
