The Western frontispiece of Santa María La Real de Olite initiates the Gothic tone of the monumental plastic in the old kingdom of Navarre. It has a layout which was to be repeated in the lands of Navarre. Its iconographic program synthesises a cycle of the Infancy, an Apostolate, matters of the Ancient Testament and apocalyptic topics. Specially note worthy is the presentation, in which the contribution of liturgical theatre was decisive. The theophanic value is one of its most outstanding aspects. Reference to style the workshops that came from Paris -Sainte Chapelle and the North Door of Notre Dame- set the pace in the execution of the project in the times before the last years of the reign of Teobald II (1253-1270).
