Villava (Basque: Atarrabia) is a town and municipality located in the province and autonomous community of Navarre, northern Spain. The population is about 10,000, and the town is located 4 km away from Pamplona, the capital of Navarre.

The village was founded in 1184 by King Sancho VI the Wise of Navarre. For several centuries, Villava was just a little town, but in the 1960s, it grew considerably and became an important industrial suburb of Pamplona.

The area of the town is small (just 1 square km), and thus it is not expected to continue growing, it has a large industrial area dedicated mainly to the paper industry, informatics and bus assembly. The town has a good commercial area.[2][3]
