Olite (Erriberri in Basque language) is a town and municipality located in the province and autonomous community of Navarre, northern Spain.

According to Isidore of Seville (Historia de regibus Gothorum, Vandalorum et Suevorum), the city, Oligicus, was founded by Swinthila, Visigothic King of Hispania (621-631).

The Palacio Real de Olite, a fine Gothic castle-palace, was the royal seat of Charles III of Navarre.
