Julian Gayarre Mausoleum Culture and Heritage

Paseo Julián Gayarre, 13, 31415 Roncal, Navarra

The mortal remains of the famous tenor Julián Gayarre rest in the Roncal cemetery, the town where he was born. This impressive Mausoleum is a must for anyone coming to the town.

Sculpted by the Valencian artist, Mariano Benlliure, it was awarded the Sculpture Medal of Honour at the Universal Exhibition of Paris in 1900. Set in white marble and bronze, the figures of four ladies who represent Music, Harmony, Melody and Fame are sculpted. There are also figures of children singing librettos of the most famous operas performed by Gayarre.


Once in the town, your visit can be completed by visiting the birthplace of the tenor, now converted into a museum.


Access: By car, 800 m from the town of Roncal.

Roncal cemetery is usually closed to the public, but the view of the mausoleum from the outside is still worth seeing.
