‪The place looks interesting from outside, but the whole area, castle and other attractions were closed for renovations. A lady told us in poor English that it is going to be closed for 8 years. I hope she meant 8 months or weeks.‬

‪They did a very nice job of serving us and the facility is well kept. The castle is very interesting with small windows with information of the life of Xavier .‬

‪ Cute little castle‬

‪We really wanted to go to the castle because my family is from Navarra and have a lot of Francisco Javier’s in the family. Is a very nice restore castle and if you are catholic is a very symbolic place. The tour was very interesting. ‬

‪Beautiful castle with excellent museum‬
מאי 2019 • זוגות
‪This castle began in the 10th century as a watch tower and was completed in the 14th century. The castle is not large, but it is well worth a visit. We wished we had allowed more time - there were a lot of interesting objects to view and the museum was very well done.‬

‪VERY WELL CARED CASTLE‬
יוני 2019 • זוגות
‪This castle was built in 14th century so very few of the original walls are standing.
It was redone in 2005 copying what it should have looked like at the time.
They did a pretty good job .
Inside it has some works of art that were donated during the years.
Many tour buses were there.‬

‪Increíble paraje, preciosas vistas exteriores e interiores, fácil de visitar con niños con cosas que les llaman la atención. Muy bonitas las miniaturas sobre la vida de Javier, apto para visitar en silla de ruedas salvo un par de salas ( subida al torreón) muy bonito e interesante, volveré.
It was a very nice trip to Leyre and Xavier, the views in the outside and the inside are simply amazing. It costs around three euros, and I can say it is worthy to visit. I did it wit my family, including two kids aged eight and ten, and they really enjoyed. It's adapted for disabled people, there are just a couple of 'corners" that have difficult access like the top of the tower. I would really recommend it to anyone visiting the area. ‬

‪wonderful castle‬
אוג׳ 2018 • משפחה
‪the castle is stunning. it can get very busy in the summer and one only has to see the huge car parks to realise this. We arrived to stay in the hotel Xabier at around 7pm and there was no one walking around. so to see the castle in its full glory in the evening sun was amazing. when we departed the hotel the following morming at around 10 am it was the same. and this was in mid August 2018. So i suggest aim for these times‬

‪We arrived in time for the 1.00 pm Mass which is in the church attached to the castle. This Mass is just for visitors and there was just us and another couple. The priest asked for a reader (the other couple obliged) and obviously took great care over the Mass and also preached a lovely, gentle and inspiring homily. It was a great start to our visit. We then went to see if we could visit the exhibition about the Jesuits in Paraguay which other reviewers had mentioned. (Remember the film 'The Mission'?) That is below the castle in a modern exhibition hall near the Jesuit residence and retreat house. As instructed by a notice, we rang the bell at the main (old) door but though the exhibition was supposed to be open until 2 pm, no-one was available to let us in. So we went to the castle and paid a bit extra for the audio guide. We were so glad we did! Yes, the castle is over-restored, as others have said, but we found all the information about it, the history, and especially about St Francis Xavier, very interesting indeed and we thought the audio guide was really well done. Don't visit the castle without it! I'd not known anything about Francis Xavier before, apart from some bare bones, and I now want to read more about him. Even if you are not religious, the audio guide would be excellent, I think. After this we walked beyond the first hotel/restaurant to find the toilets which, as others have said, are very clean, and then sat in a bar for a while. That took us to 4.00 pm and we rang the doorbell of the Jesuit residence/retreat house again. We responded to the intercom question in Spanish, but on this occasion at least, English would have worked as the Jesuit who came down to let us into the exhibition spoke English as soon as he had asked where we were from. He couldn't stay with us as he had work to do, but he took us into the exhibition hall, found us a beautiful A4 brochure (a small book, really) in English and then took time to explain the first few displays to us in a very engaging and informative way. That, alone, was worth the visit! But after he left us, we were able to go through the rest of the displays as the brochure was a translation of all of them, with the images too. We enjoyed this exhibition hugely and it was a real eye-opener to the history of that time. I am so pleased to have visited Javier and recommend it thoroughly. We drove past an empty car park to the one further on and then, after parking, we walked back past a couple of bars, the toilets and a tourist office towards the castle. It is clearly marked. However, had we parked in the first car park, we would have found that a wide flight of steps led directly to the road opposite the castle and it would have cut down the walk time. By the way, students and people over 65 are given a reduced rate to enter the castle; I didn't notice what other reduced rates were offered.‬
