Burlada-Burlata (Spanish/Basque) is a commune in the Autonomous Community of Navarre (Comunidad Foral de Navarra) in Spain. It borders Pamplona and Villava to the north, Huarte to the east, Egüés to the south and Pamplona to the west. The town is located in the Pamplona valley and is part of the extended urban space of the Navarrese capital.

Burlada has been documented since the time of the kings of Navarre, i.e. from the 10th century. The kings owned a palace here and used it for recreation. The palace, later destroyed, had private access to the site’s Romanesque church, which also no longer exists (destroyed in the mid-20th century). Another indication of the importance of the town is the Romanesque bridge over the Río Arga.

Sights include:

  • Romanesque Bridge (Puente de Burlada): Medieval bridge made up of six semicircular arches. Due to many reconstructions, it is difficult to specify the construction period.
  • City palaces (Palacetes de Burlada): At the beginning of the 20th century, various palaces were built along the main street (Calle Mayor) of the town. The most important is the Palacio Uranga, surrounded by a park.
  • Church of St. John (Iglesia de San Juan): The first church was located in what is now Plaza San Juan, now occupied by the Casa Consistorial. On June 24, 1952, for the city’s Saint John’s Day, the construction of the new church began, it was consecrated on October 17, 1954 and was a project of the architect Javier Yárnoz. The plan is in the form of a Latin cross, the altarpiece is neoclassical and comes from Pamplona Cathedral, and the furniture was brought from various places in Navarre.
  • Parish Church of St. Blaise (Parroquia de San Blás): Due to the growth of the town, a new parish church became necessary, which was taken over by the municipality on June 29, 1970. It was dedicated to Santa Maria Soledad Torres Acosta, founder of a women’s congregation dedicated to nursing.
