Wine tourism on the Way of St James
Castillo de Monjardin
Castillo de Monjardín.

After your visit to our winery and the village of Villamayor de Monjardín, we have put together a few suggestions to round off your day and make it one to be remembered. This favoured area of Navarre offers something for everyone - history, art, culture, traditions and nature.

In the year 908, Navarre king Sancho Garcés I conquered the castle of Deyo in Villamayor de Monjardín, occupied by the Arabs. This event was to change the course of European history and led to the expansion of the Kingdom of Pamplona, the future Kingdom of Navarre. This battle had a direct effect on the Way of St James, which, before the castle conquest, went from Pamplona towards Alava. Sancho Garcés then diverted this route to the present-day one, to pass through the valley of Deyo towards La Rioja and this then led to the development of Estella and the nearby localities. According to legend, Sancho Garcés I was buried in the castle of San Esteban of Deyo.

The Way of St James became increasingly popular after the discovery of the tomb of the apostle St James (Santiago) in present-day Santiago de Compostela at the beginning of the 9th century. The place became a pilgrim destination for millions of European during the Middle Ages. Kings and noblemen in the small Christian kingdoms within the Iberian peninsula promoted the development of the pilgrim route, which became the umbilical cord linking up with the rest of Christian Europe. Pilgrimages declined from the 16th century onwards, due to religious wars and a general lack of interest. It was not until the last century, in the nineteen-seventies, that fresh impetus was given to the route which once more became one of the most important religious destinations and tourist attractions in Europe. In 1993, UNESCO declared the Way of St James to be a World Heritage Site.
