For many years, Segura was a mandatory transit point for those coming from Castilla and France, and there are still some stately homes and palaces, like Ardixarra Palace (now the office of the Interpretation Centre of Medieval History), Lardizabal Palace (now City Hall), or the parish church of La Asunción.
The village has kept its medieval quarter in very good condition. Known for their Holy Week processions, you will see 10 pasos -scenes of Christ’s Passion- between Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. The most renowned procession is Jesucristo Crucificado, whose image was carved by the sculptor Juan Martínez Montañés, from Seville.
Other important festivities are Saint Nicholas day, the medieval festival or the Basque Country and Navarre typical dance competition –baile al suelto-.
