Our rating: 7.40
Overall rating:
Javier Castle was originally built in the 10th century. From 1236 it belonged to the king of Navarre and was rebuilt many times until it was destroyed in 1516, after the capture of the Kingdom of Navarre by the Spaniards.

At that time, the castle was owned by the father of Francisco Xavier, co-founder of the Jesuit Order. The first Catholic missionary in Japan was born in the castle, but his father’s lands were soon confiscated. In his honor, in March, pilgrims come to the castle and monastery.
