Santa María de Jus del Castillo street starts at the confluence of the street with Curtidores street and begins the ascents to Zalatambor castle passing under Fortunato Aguirre street which forms part of the Estella variant. As if it was a time tunnel, the ascent to the fortress is also an incursion into the first Jewish settlement in Estella in a district where the majority of the houses remain concealed under the ground after having suffered centuries of abandonment.

The current church of Santa María de Jus del Castillo is Romanesque, endowed with just one nave and a tambour-shaped apze, though its façade and tower are Baroque. Alongside the church the remains of the walls can be appreciated which fortified the city's castle.
