Witches Museum (Zugarramurdi) Culture and Heritage

Beitikokarrika, 18, 31710 Zugarramurdi, Navarra

Also known as the “Witches Village”, the enigmatic history of Zugarramurdi has for some time been linked to myths, legends and traditions, including a real witch hunt at the beginning of the 17th century.


In 1610, the court of the Inquisition judged and cruelly punished about 30 people. On November 7, the burning of the heretics took place in Logroño and, as a result, 21 people arrested were accused of minor crimes, 21 were pardoned and 11 condemned to death by burning (6 in person and 5, who had died earlier, in effigy, along with their mortal remains).


Today, the Witches Museum recalls this practice and portrays the Navarrese society of the 17th century with its myths and legends, light and shade, relating the daily life of the people.


Access: By car, on the N-121 road.
